"This is Sept 11. If there is one day on the calendar that we can suspend politics, it should be today," said Weiner, who attended a church in Harlem. "I don't think it's a day for politics."

But the fact that a guy named Weiner was attending a church in Harlem should signal that these visits to houses of God were less about prayer than politics. 'Tis the season. Ferrer (who on 9-11-01 might have won the Democratic primary outright, if it had occurred.
