Blog Round Up: 9/11 Eleven Years Later

A round up of local voices on Patch.


Patch is pleased to announce a new partnership with SCORE, a non-profit organization with 12,000 business experts nationwide who provide free mentoring to small business owners.

"It was like the end of the world,” said Sean P. Cassidy, my dad, who was a first responder on 9/11 and is a detective for Nassau County Police Department.

It was not until recently that I finally had the courage to ask my dad, what happened that day, 11 years ago. It wasn’t that we didn’t discuss the tragic events that took place in our backyard. But it was almost as like asking a war veteran to speak about their time during battle. It’s a no-go zone for a conversation around the dinner table.

Read what has to say about the jobs report and why he thinks his plan can turn things around.

From puberty to menopause, a woman's natural hormone balance can be affected by many factors. These include an unhealthy lifestyle, stress, genetics, chemical exposures, current and past health issues, pregnancy and childbirth history, and even her mother's health during pregnancy.

That link looks awfully "spammy" if you know what I mean...

Is that a link to another wild 9-11 conspiracy theory? They're just as bad as the lunatics that say that the moon landing was faked. Not even going to bother clicking on it.

Rob, I know we have our differences in here, but I'd advise you (and everybody else for that matter) not to click that link either. It looks awfully suspicious, like a spyware app link or something dangerous to your computer. Flag it & move on...

The link has been deleted.

Excellent. I've mistakenly clicked on a few of those in my past. One devestated my old computer beyond repair. Thanx!

Had no intentions on clicking on it. If it were a malware link I hope that person just got a lifelong IP ban.

Just looking out for you, dude. We may differ on some points but I wish no ill will on anyone...
