Remember when September 11th was just another day with no significance attached to it, like August 7th or November 19th?

Well it'll eventually be the day of the "Patriot Day" sales. So people will be able to get some good deals at least.

It's not as bad as 2011, the ten year anniversary. I was in Mexico at the time and they had CNN in the hotel and it was NON STOP 9/11 coverage.


We should observe it though...let's use it has another reason to drink.

I realized it when I look at the date, it was the first thought that came to mind.


So...that says a LOT about the media over the last 10 years.

Where were you on September 11th, 2001?

I was home, unemployed, and pissing away time playing EQ1 when I heard. I remember being angry at the pilot because I thought it was an accident.  Wife was dismissed early from work and came home crying. Then the other reports started coming in about the Pentagon.

I thought that horse one was OK, just a personal remembrance.  Turns out it's an ad for a business.
