Obama as Superman?

Okay, now I've seen everything.
I came across these newly wheat pasted Obama worship/fetish pieces in my neighborhood tonight.

Unbridled Obamessiah porn.
What next?

Ground Zero: September 11, 2008

The troofers are coming..! The troofers are coming..!

I went to the memorial services at Ground Zero this morning. The streets surrounding the old World Trade Center site were completely sealed off to pedestrian traffic. It was very crowded so I worked my way around taking as many photos as I could.

This guy had a pretty interesting sign.

This troofer fellow wearing an Obama button didn't seem to like it one bit.

Undaunted and dead serious.

On a lighter note, there were lots of other people out there today like these firemen.

This dapper shoe shine man.

A cheerful if not eccentric NYC patriot.

I got a strange feeling from this woman. Then I zoomed in on what she was wearing around her neck.

A sign of Satan? Or just Paganism? Sorry for the ugly photo, folks.

The Mennonites were out in force!


A study in contrasts...

This woman was crying and bowing.

This was her schtick. The Bowing Project. Ya hear that, Zawahiri? She's bowing!

Okay, now for the real nuts...
The troofers were lamentably encamped around the edges of Trinity church cemetery.

The troofer 'media.'

Now for the heroes!

Real US Soldiers! Shook their hands and said, 'Thanks!'

At the very end, as I headed back towards the subway I was happy to be able to catch this group of firefighters marching toward the Brooklyn Bridge. I love the sound of the bagpipes and drums.

And off they went over the Brooklyn Bridge. Which is right were I started today.
