How Many Blocks?

One has to wonder how many blocks would suffice to ease the distress of those who object to the Islam Cultural Center being proposed near the former site of the World Trade Center. Would five more blocks be sufficient? Or how about Chelsea or Midtown? Is Harlem far enough? Or would Staten Island work? Quebec?

If women who had been raped refused to live near or work near or shop near any man because of the association with that memory, a huge proportion of the country would be cordoned.

About Carolyn

I live in Washington, D.C., write, teach, try to eat the requisite fruits and veggies daily, and avoid caffeine after 2 pm. I wonder about things a lot -- like why "pretty" means "pretty" and "not so much" and if I can ever perfect the single-portion, no-knead, daily baguette and how many people realize that Beau Brummel had a lot to do with our desire to bathe daily -- those of us who do in fact "take the daily."
