Lots of talking heads today ruminating whether or not we should make 9/11 a national holiday. What a great idea. I'm really looking forward to the day that 9/11 morphs into 9/11 Weekend, heralded by sales fliers announcing that we must (as I actually saw this past Memorial Day) DECLARE OUR FREEDOM FROM HIGH PRICES. I for one do not relish the thought of my future nieces and nephews one day sitting around all, "Maaaaaaaaaan, can't wait for 9/11. Gonna drink 'till I puke."
Go to work. That's precisely what every single person was doing the day they died two years ago.
