Compared to some of the memorials planned for the anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York and at the Pentagon, today's ceremony at Leisure Village will be a small affair. There won't be a solemn reading of names of those who died on that horrible day a year ago. No heads of state will be in attendance. A pack of battle-ready F/A-18s won't buzz by in honor formation overhead. But Milt Eisner, 82, will be there. So will Ben Perry, 84, Eisner's close friend and fellow native New Yorker.
