September 11 retrospective: More random opinions on 9/11 via PBS NewshourContinuing from yesterday's collection of PBS Newshour YouTube videos of person-on-the-street interviews in which the subjects offer mostly canned or clueless comments.
Here we have a Delaware Bubba. Short version of his comments: Hanging out at gun shows is my favorite thing to do.
Short version from this lady: I come from overseas but I don't really know anything much about Muslim-Christian relations.
Short version from the next guy, who comes across as generally well-informed and tolerant, but probably not knowing that much about Islam: Racial and religious bigotry suck. (This is one of the best of these clips I've seen.)
A kid from Wisconsin, short version: I'm too young to remember much before 2001, but I think I heard recently that some terrorist named Osama or something was killed.
Short version of this woman of Cuban descent: I'm a grown-up so I know that there's no 100% security and that it's good to be prepared for emergencies.
Another Delaware guy, short version: Patriotism means being afraid of foreigners.
Another grown-up, short version: I'm not a Pod Pundit on TV but I sure think constantly waging war against other countries is a really bad idea.
