Guess what? We’re angry. We’re AN-GRY…Our people got blown up in a building. They all died. They had a choice: they could jump to their death or be burned to death. They were doing nothing to these people. Now, you want to play by the rules? I liked it. I think it’s a good message—not only will you get killed, but we’ll piss on you.
A friend of mine got a tape of Stern’s September 11, 2001 show — his time slot coincided with the attacks, and they watched events as they happened — but says he still hasn’t listened to it. I don’t think I could, either.
