Ground Zero mosque ‘stabs the heart’; strip clubs, betting parlors not so much
A downtown Manhattan blogger with a camera strolled around the Ground Zero two-block periphery and snapped some photos of the “hallowed ground” many political leaders on the right say the proposed Cordoba community center and mosque will defile.

The New York Dolls gentleman’s strip club an off-track betting parlor and fast food holes apparently pass the decency test, however, their existence within walking distance of the felled Twin Towers does not “stab the heart” of people “throughout the heartland,” and so support for them requires no refudiation!
