DaTechGuy shows you what $8.99 will get you for lunch at the Border Grille and Bar, Mill St. Leominster

The question isn’t why I’m eating at the Border Grille and Bar on Mill Street near the Whitney Field Mall for lunch, the question is why aren’t you?

    Hey Guy: Can’t find an email contact so I’m using a comment box. Heard about your new radio show. Would you like me to come on to discuss a topic that should interest many folks in my native Massachusetts, if they ever got to hear about it? I’m talking about the Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93, a giant Islamic-shaped crescent that turns out to point to Mecca.

    A crescent that points to Mecca is a very familiar construct in the Islamic world. Every mosque is built around a Mecca-direction indicator called a mihrab, and the classic mihrab is crescent shaped. The memorial now being built in Shanksville PA will be the world’s largest mosque, and it’s no accident.

    A tech guy like yourself would have no problem verifying basic facts like the Mecca-orientation of the giant crescent. Kinda sounds up your alley, actually. Fact checking resources at my link.

    Tom Burnett Sr. (father of Flight 93 hero Tom Jr.) will probably be able to come on as well (depending on the scheduling). He served on the jury that picked the Crescent design, urging his fellow jurists (mostly left wing design professionals) to please not accept this obviously Islamist design. He has been fighting it ever since.

    After the crescent design caused a national uproar when it was first unveiled in 2005, the Park Service promised to make changes. They call the design a broken circle now, but that is what architect Paul Murdoch always called it: the terrorists broke our circle of peace on 9/11, turning it into a giant Islamic shaped crescent. A more obviously terrorist-memorializing theme is hard to imagine.

    The only actual change was the addition of an extra arc of trees that explicitly represents a broken off part of the circle. The unbroken part of the circle, what symbolically remains standing in the wake of 9/11, is just the original Crescent of Embrace, a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, still pointing to Mecca.

    A lot of Massachusetts folks have personal interest in the Flight 93 story. There were a lot of New Englanders on that Logan to SF flight. But I have never yet had an opportunity to speak to a Massachusetts audience. Sure would like the chance. What do you say.

    you know what else is crescent shaped? The moon. And croussants. And parenthesis. And boomerangs. And the evil Christian letter C. Oh my there’s TWO c’s in the word Mecca. Please you must discuss this as well.

    What next? The Washington monument looks like a giant penis and points up towards heaven?
