Your opinion, and as a 'former' NYer myself MY OPINION stands. Besides, I didnt say "all" however you took offense, ok. I grew up there- 19 years of my life- I go back and visit. After 9-11 everyone blew me away with how they changed and were gracious and actually seemed to be turning a page. Then 2002 came and the flags came down and the attitude went right back to Me-me-me-not you- me. Sorry, opinions are what they are- its how I see it. I only find myself offended when someone starts off meaning to offend me personally. I wasnt talking to anyone specifically. Thanks.
