I know, I said I wouldn't say anything else about the 11th. I lied.

· I know it's the thought that counts, but Celine Dion singing "God Bless America" seemed almost silly.

· Is anyone else sick and tired of the smarminess permeating this whole thing? I know people want to help, want to "heal our wounds" or some such bullshit; but enough already. It's gotten so melodramatic that I can hardly watch TV anymore for fear of seeing more of this schlock.

· I think I saw a serious article in The Onion for the first time ever. It's done very much in Onion style, but there's none of the humor you'd expect to find. They must have a couple actual writers on the staff; this was a tough combination to pull off. The "article" is here, if you want to read it.

· Just heard over my shoulder on the one channel I get that Laura Bush may be Dubya's "secret weapon with the press." Seems she's more articulate than he is. Uhm, no shit?
