Quote of the Week

May 2, 2011

From the Wall Street Journal in a story on the death of Osama bin Laden (emphasis mine):

There was a mix of somberness [and of] celebration near Ground Zero, where a new tower is rapidly becoming part of the city’s skyline. Cheers rang out and horns honked, while others lit candles at a memorial at the site.

Frank Cantwell, a 64-year-old operating engineer at the construction site there, said there were only a few people present when the news first broke. “It’s long overdue,” he said. “You can sort of hear the silent cheers of 3,000 ghosts.”
