Memorial Photo 9-11 and Katrina Censored
And now, bringing to this stage, more "Interestingness". Straight from a public photo-sharing community, the "Honk" image of my memorial to 9-11 and Katrina on our personal protest that day has been deleted from public view in tag searches and all records deleted from it having achieved the #1 photo for that day in flickr.com.
What does this mean? In it's place, a different memorial photo to 9-11 has been recognized as #1. Despite over 3,000 views and many comments, the Honk image is now relegated to a form of detention. The image may be seen by those who "faved it" or know to come look at it within my photo stream, or by those who are members of group photo pools that I submitted it to.
However, if a visitor goes to visit a photo pool, in a group such as "Top-F" (for top favorited photos), they will not see that Honk is in that group pool, at all. Only people who join that group will be able to see it.
This is sad that such censorship can come in any form, at any time, in Amerika. The new image I have in my photo stream: current photo September 13 provides proof that my Honk image was censored by wingnuts who were angered about my message. All they had to do was click a link called "May Offend" and it was removed from public searches and the archives of the most popular images of that day. There is no remedy to right this wrong, but it is also my perogative to publicize what has happened.

Embarassed by Bush
Today, my son and I and my roommate marked the fourth anniversary of 9-11 by making our protest signs and standing on a busy street corner in Phoenix, Arizona with them. Hundreds of honks! Who says one person can't make a difference!!!
We had a fantastic reception this afternoon on a busy street corner in a ritzy part of town, not far from our home. This was right next to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where Bush stays at when he is in town. For over an hour, the three of us stood, with hundreds of passing cars honking approval. Some of the hotel guests came by and told us we "are doing the right thing". NickFun saw three very old ladies in a car that laid on the horn so loud and so long it was amazing!
After the "approval" and good ratings earning by George Bush after the 9-11 disaster, he has squandered it all on appointing cronies to do his jobs. And then he appointed losers. Just think of the horror of ADDING TO THE KATRINA DISASTER by the inept response of our own federal government!
When Norway sends forensics experts to help identify bodies, and dead bodies float for days, something is terribly wrong in the US of A. This is not the country I recognize any more. We, who are known to go anywhere in the world to retrieve and rescue one American, have let all the people down with this catastrophe. Think of all the living that were treated like expendable nothings while the politics were being played. Think of the lame excuses offered by the Bush Administration. When will this embarassment end?
