I chose a song written by the piano man in the headline to convey my sincere sympathy to Mr. Joel, and to offer good news. As a big fan of yours, and of your city, I wish to make you aware that I believe 100% that no one died, as we are told, on 9/11. The Moslems are not after us, and life is, in fact, good.

This may be a useful way to understand how, writ large, the brain’s capacity for generating new narratives after shocking events can contribute to so much paranoia in this country.
