  •  The human remains were not the worst part to (8+ / 0-)

    inhale, health-wise.  Those were giant office towers loaded with everything needed to keep a modern office running.  Everything from plastics to computer circuit boards were ground into fine particles, not to mention the concrete of the buildings, and most likely asbestos and lead too.  Fine particulates of anything are known to cause cancer, and there were particles of everything in that dust.  

    The first responders were told by their government that it was safe to breathe in that dust, and now the Republicans want to run them through a terrorist watch list to receive the treatment they need because of that dust?  Is there a "giant asshole award" that he Republicans are trying to win, otherwise their actions make no sense at all.
