when a local DJ said there was a report of a plane hitting one of the Trade Center towers. Damn, some clown flying where he shouldn't have been, I thought. Little bit later "A second plane has hit the other tower." Ok, that's no accident.
So on went the tv, and watching and listening. Didn't see any of the people jumping that I recall, saw that later(and God damn every miserable excuse for a reporter who decided they needed to replay Abu Graib shit over and over, but couldn't show any of that because 'it upset people'). One thing I do remember: some talking head, in the appropriate breathless voice, said something for the whatever-time about "Terror striking into the heartland", and I realized I was on my feet yelling "Terror striking? What about the PISSED OFF in the heartland, you moron!"
I didn't realize then just how many people would use this as an opportunity to piss on their own country. That there were people who actually wanted to believe Bush did it. That there were so many in Congress who'd sworn to uphold and protect who'd use it to try and tear down(found out just what that oath meant to them).
But the most of us remember('Day of Service' my ass). And we support striking at the people behind this, and we support the troops. I've got my gripes with Bush 43, but going after the bad guys in Afghanistan and Iraq and other places isn't one of them.
That's all for now, just not sure how to put things.
