Is there any. Fucking. Need. For this? This isn't about remembrance, this is about nostalgia. That notion just hit me. The news people and a good deal of the rest of this country are nostalgic over 9/11, not 9/10, and that's not right. We like this shit because it's entertaining, and the news people like it because it's money.

In addition, will offer comprehensive coverage of the anniversary, including a multimedia look at how life has changed since the terrorist attacks...

How has life changed? We're dumber. Next.

"And while difficult, for many of us it is important to remember the emotion of that day... On this September 11, as we reflect on what has happened to our nation and our world, it is important to remember, but even more important not to forget."

As per usual here this is review, but how exactly in the fuck are we supposed to forget? If we even forget for a couple of seconds they ram shit down our throats to rectify that situation.

In an effort to be sensitive to those who may not want to view the images, the feed will include a viewer discretion warning...

Two things. One, if you care about being "sensitive", you could always not do this in the first place. Just a thought. And two, if people don't want to see the images, god forbid they should be smart enough to not fire up this shit up in the first place. But of course, we're talking about people here, and at least in this country, we are, again, dumber than we were five years ago, when we were already pretty fucking stupid.

Once again this year, my plans for 9/11 are to pretty much ignore as much shit as I possibly can. Unfortunately, it's not safe to look at or listen to anything, but I'll do what I can to limit the damage.
