At the risk of duplicating all of Salon's content today

, here's an excerpt from one more article:
"Often, though, the two sides seemed to be speaking different languages, with entirely different points of reference. A clean-cut landlord rolled his eyes when a bearded minister in a long blue trench coat and pink antiwar armband told him, "Greed breeds mean deeds." Protesters got increasingly frustrated as they tried to explain to furious men that no, Saddam Hussein wasn't behind Sept. 11. Members of both camps insisted that the others don't really speak for the people. "

What I find interesting about this article is that it perfectly captures the diversity of the people of New York. It's brilliant.
