>And you don't find #36's pie-in-the-sky outlook ludicrous and corny?

I don't think most people did. Certainly not, as an example, the fireman with
one of the rescue teams who read the book and, according to the letter he sent,
passed it along to all the surviving members of his fire station, who were
moved to tears by it, and found some peace because of it.

But if you feel that way, that's fine.

>This
>falsehood that the entire world wept for 9/11 serves no one.

This was never said in the book, therefore it cannot be a falsehood.

>Good people
>around the world continued to be good.

The book never said otherwise.

>And bad people continued to be bad.

The book never said otherwise.

>Nothing changed, regardless of whether we got a half-hearted and entirely
>symbolic "we feel for you" card from Libya.

The book never said otherwise.

May I suggest that if you're going to give the book a hard time, you confine
yourself to what it actually *said* rather than any straw man arguments you
prop up for a quick and easy attack?

I mean, it takes up a lot of time to explain all the things I do say and do; if
I have to start explaining all the things I don't say and do, well, we'll be
here all year....
