Did I just hear that?

So, I’m the first person to stand up and tell people to get over themselves. I tend to think that people hold on to stuff and do things in the name of for a lot longer than is reasonable.

That’s not to say I’m heartless or anything…I’m all for having a tribute and moments of silence (even though I gotta go with George Carlin on that one, why is it silence, they’re dead, not sleeping, why isn’t it a moment of screaming instead?) and all that kind of stuff when it is appropriate, but there comes a point where you have to put your big boy pants on and face the world anyway.

That’s why I was surprised I felt weird when I heard that there was going to be an Air Show scheduled for the same weekend as-well, scheduled for the weekend of September 11th.

That sat wrong with me; the fact that it bugged me also kind of bugged me, since I’m the one to tell people to move on. I guess that means it still isn’t time. I wonder who will go?

    I think a lot of people will be there, actually.
    Or at least the same people who’d have gone no matter when it was to be held.

    I think many people have short attention spans when it comes to tragedies like this one – either that or they believe it didn’t happen to them, but to the people in NYC.
