Matthew McConaughey NYC From Behind With Camera

Look at the size of that dingy on our dream boat!!

And, no, we aren't talking about the schooner floating through the East River!

Our mouth is WATERING because our eyes spy the deliciously delectable Matthew McConaughey, who worked up one heck of a sweat after jogging around Ground Zero in NYC.

Alright, alright!

After his run, Matty pulled out his camera (but not his wedgie, LOLz!!) and snapped some pictures of the space where the Twin Towers used to stand.

Boy do we love this man from behind!!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

We couldn't think of a more appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives so tragically ten years ago.

Please watch Paul Simon, of Simon & Garfunkel, perform a heartwrenching and somber acoustic performance of the classic Sound of Silence at Ground Zero today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center (above).

Powerful. Moving. And undeniably beautiful.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one that day.

May they R.I.P. and always be remembered.

"Although we can never un-see what happened here, we can also see that children who lost their parents have grown into young adults, grandchildren have been born and good works and public service have taken root to honor those we loved and lost."

- Mayor Michael Bloomberg, National September 11th Memorial ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center, Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, in New York.

The names of all 2,983 victims of the attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania have been etched in bronze into black stone surrounding two reflecting pools in the footprints of the Twin Towers.

May they never be forgotten.

Obama Planning To Visit Ground Zero On Thursday

We imagine this is going to be an extremely emotional, powerful moment for most Americans.

In the wake of Osama bin Laden's death early Monday, President Barack Obama will be visiting Ground Zero in lower Manhattan this Thursday, May 5th, to meet with the families of those the terrorist killed in the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon.

Hopefully this will serve as a comfort to all of those who have been living with the weight of that man's horrific acts on their shoulders for so many years.

We sincerely hope that this victory for the country will give them some peace of mind.

9/11 Responders Will Get Millions From NYC

Filed under: Legal Matters

911-workers-getting-million.jpg

And they deserve every cent!

More than 10,000 workers were exposed to tons of toxic dust in the aftermath of 9/11 and their legal battle with New York City in a joint a settlement worth at least $625 million.

The deal will resolve most of the lawsuits over NYC's failure to provide protective equipment to construction workers, police officers and firefighters who spent months clearing and sifting through rubble at ground zero.

Thousands claimed that soot at the site got into their lungs and made them extremely ill.

"This settlement is a fair and just resolution of these claims, protecting those who came to the aid of this City when we needed it most," said Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Paul Napoli, a senior partner with the law firm representing most of the workers, called the settlement "the best result, given the uncertainty of protracted litigation."

It will provide at least $625 million to the workers, although deals with other defendants, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will likely boost that total to over $725 million.

Most of the money will come from the $1 billion fund set up by Congress and paid-for by taxes.

The U.S. Senate is considering legislation, which was already passed in the House, that would authorize $7.4 billion in additional medical care and payments to the sick.

Several NY lawmakers that sponsored the bill gave the following statement:

"Nearly everyone agrees that the settlement does not provide adequate funding to fully compensate those who are injured among the more than 10,500 plaintiffs in this case, nor does it cover the tens of thousands of 9/11 responders and survivors who are injured but have not filed lawsuits."

The sad thing is that legal fees will eat about a quarter of the money available to plaintiffs.

We hope the sick get the help they need and the money to support their families! We owe them that!
