Jim Wright should be remembered in the s-f world as the sanctimonious poser who lovingly crafted in his workshop those wooden ass-terisks handed out at the Hugo ceremony last year.
Since he doesn't recognize how hateful and disrespectful that was, he can't be trusted as either an honest or intelligent person.
Wright served in the Navy and seems intent on being known as the most PC and abusive veteran in the U.S.
He has a blog and in marking the anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attack, put forth a emotional screed that has been making the rounds. In his peroration, he states:
"Frankly, I have had enough of 9-11. Fuck 9-11. I'm not going to watch the shows. I'm not going to any of the memorials.
"I'm not going to the 9-11 sales at Wal-Mart. I don't want to hear about 9-11. I for damned sure am not interested in watching politicians of either party try to out 9-11 each other.
"I'm tired of this national 9-11 PTSD. I did my bit for revenge, I went to war, I'll remember the dead in my own time in my own way.
"I'm not going to shed a damned tear today."
Yeah, he has his right to free speech, and I have the right to denounce him, too.
What do you think?
