    My meme for the day.

    I didn't have a TeeVee set. But when I woke up (California), turned on my computer and went to CNN to read the news, the site was all taken down, but for a big headline announcing the attack. It was big news. There was all sorts of people witnessing on other websites, such as Slashdot.

    It wasn't until that evening, after working at home that day, that I went to my girlfriend's house and could clearly see how the media was exploiting their audience with emotional garbage over this event. Over the next few weeks, America became a nation of frightened cowards. Compare to the Brits and how they handled WWII and all that terrorism over Northern Ireland and I think you'll see my point.

    But it was the best thing that ever happened to George W. Bush. He exploited it to the hilt and his popularity rose like an intercontinental ballistic missile.
