The new World Trade Center is open for business for the first time today. There was nothing more horrific, or world changing, than the day the Twin Towers fell. So much has been written about September 11, 2001, that this day should be a day of celebration, and a day of renewal for New York City.
You gotta admit, we were pretty smug on September 10th, 2001. The economy was strong, all the Y2k nonsense had settled down, we thought the whole world wanted to be us.
On September 11th, we found out how wrong we were.
