Don’t miss Terry Golway’s devastating column on the Kerik affair.
“It’s time to remember that the real heroes of 9/11 have not made millions since the attacks and are not getting high-profile jobs. They were inside the towers, and as a result they are now dead or living with horrible memories. It is time to ask ourselves why we placed the likes of Bernie Kerik on a pedestal in the first place. And it is surely time to ask why people like Bernie Kerik have become rich playing the role of symbolic heroes of 9/11 when there are real heroes who are still fighting fires and patrolling the streets.”
