Who is to blame?

Hmmm…well, telling it like it is, which is that it was the actions of one, pathetic loser who was seeking his 15 minutes of fame, doesn’t sell books I guess. It doesn’t get TV ratings, it doesn’t sell newspapers.

But, getting folks wound up by looking for someone or something else to blame…THAT sells books and newspapers and getting people to listen to TV and crappy radio shows like this one, right?

Yet another scumbag trying to distort what happened on that awful day to try to make money off of it. It is shameful.

@Bret Linden

You can make your point without using words like that. You don’t know Tom; your epithet is hardly appropriate. And you very obviously haven’t read his book.

I listened to the show…that was all I needed to hear.

No, I didn’t read the book, and I never will. I absolutely refuse to give one thin dime to anyone who is trying to cash in on this horrible tragedy and the suffering of so many others…

I believe my statement is very appropriate. I stand by it, don’t retract any of it, don’t apologize for any of it.
