11th September - 35 years on

Today is September 11th, or 11/9. (I'm sorry, if you want a post on 9/11 come back on 9th November). This is the day each year when the rest of the world says to the United States of America, gently and with due humility, "Get over it already!"

(Exceptions granted only for those with family and close friends killed in the WTC.)

That is, the small parts of the rest of the world that don't say "September the what?"

(They don't say that in Chile of course, where they wish that the world, especially people in Britain and America, would remember the real tragedy of 11/9.)

But - but - but

I'm in complete agreement. They still haven't worked on the World Trade Center site because of fights about what type of memorial to put up (on private property without paying for it).
