Thomas Friedman is free at last!
Today was the first time I read one of Thomas Friedman's columns in The New York Times in quite some time. This was the first one that I noticed since The Times tore down their TimesSelect paywall. So, once again, Thomas Friedman is free at last!
BTW, I do happen to agree the central thesis of this latest column entitled "9/11 Is Over" that we need to refocus on who we as a country are rather than letting 9/11 (and politicians exploiting it) define us:
We have got to get our groove back. We need a president who will unite us around a common purpose, not a common enemy. Al Qaeda is about 9/11. We are about 9/12, we are about the Fourth of July which is why I hope that anyone who runs on the 9/11 platform gets trounced.
In any case, I wonder whose paywall will fall next.
