NEW YORK 11 MONTHS AFTER: Instapundit links to this Russ Smith “Mugger” essay, who says that New York is far from “over it”.

Having been there last week to visit relatives and friends in the area, I agree. Nina and I met a friend for dinner Friday night in lower Manhattan, and all of us felt slightly spooked when we looked out of an 11th story window and saw a low-flying plane or helicopter orbiting the night skies several times.

Of course, it was nothing. But how many people, on the morning of September 11th, 2001 watched a low-flying plane and thought, “of course, it’s nothing”?
