Very Symbolic
I pray for the family of this young man who committed suicide at WTC site, but I can't pass up an opportunity to point out one of the differences between conservatives and liberals: "'I'm absolutely sure it's a protest,' Mary Anne Mauney, Veal's supervisor at the lab, told The Daily News. 'I don't know what made him commit suicide, but where he did it was symbolic.'"

Where he did it is symbolic, so it must have been a protest. The WTC is symbolic. See, for me, the WTC isn't symbolic, it's where they murdered thousands of our citizens. The left: the WTC is a symbol of _____ (our oppression of the arab people, their first act in striking back, the need to capture OBL, etc.). The right: the WTC is an example of what can happen if we don't act before such attacks occur, to make sure that they don't occur.

The left: WTC is an example of what can happen if American foreign policy is focused on American interests to the exclusion of all others, and what can happen again if we continue to let our fears overrun our brains and fail to embark on a systematic, deliberate, and strategic effort to dismantle terrorist cells, especially Al Qaeda. And yes, that means catching Osama.
