Ground Zero

No, this isn't supposed to be a comment on the proposed mosque.

Unless there were nukes aboard those jets, calling the site "ground zero" is:


Come up with something that makes more sense, morons!

Blame Jim Axelrod for starting the stupidity. Blame a few hundred million others for picking up that ball and running with it. Read more here.
