3. Every 9/11, I watch Fahrenheit 911 -- and I like it

Last edited Thu Sep 11, 2014, 11:59 PM - Edit history (5)

I like remembering how awful 9/11 was. I like remembering how awful the Bush years were. I like remembering that I didn't buy into it. And I like reminding myself that if there hadn't been a 9/11, there probably wouldn't be a DU as we know it. The only difference now is that I don't do it ALL day -- by noon, I'm back to getting on with my life, and at night, I haul out my Concert for New York tapes in an effort to end the day on an up note (this year, however, Sarah Palin beat me to it). But I consider it a duty to remind myself because we must NEVER backslide to that awful era.

On edit: Here's what I wrote seven 9/11s ago.
