9.11.07 - II

I posted this on my other blog, and a constant reader cut and pasted it into the comments section on the posting below. Here it is for those who may have missed it.

Crazy for the Red White and Blue (cross-posting from Blues From a Cubicle).

Someone left a red white and blue lapel ribbon on my desk.

Now, those that know me understand that I do not wear my feelings on my sleeve (or my lapel). And the last thing you will find me sporting is some kind of misplaced patriotic chachkey.

9/11 , in my eyes, is less a time for waving our flags, and more a time for reflection.

Of course, it’s funny, as we get further and further away from September 11th, 2001 - the day just seems to get more and more like any other day. I wonder how soon before they start having “Patriot Day Sales” at used car lots and furniture stores.

Around here it is just another day in Officeland. Supervisors are locked in a room having another meeting, phones are ringing, people are gossiping.

… I bet for some of those poor souls at the world trade center, their day was as mind numbingly dull just before it all went to hell…

Have a peaceful day.
