Today's September 11th, and I think you know what that means: eight more days until Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Though, it's also apparently the 5th anniversary of that fateful day that I got an English quiz back that was a "C."
As you can see, I'm not much for sentimentality (at least in writing). Humor requires a certain amount of Stoicism (not too much... otherwise, you become Socrates, who, in his day, happened to be the least funniest person in Athens... all the late night comedians made fun of his inability to handle a joke) combined with a critical eye and the ability to see connections between unlike things (pop modern culture and Socrates, for example). Since I intend this blog to be satirical, humorous, and sometimes shockingly untruthful, I don't write much on tragedy. I gave Katrina a bit of blogtime, but that was because... well... it was because Bush doesn't care about black people.
Or maybe he does. I just don't care anymore. All I care about is giving people a bit of catharsis in their daily lives. Find what's wrong and satirize it.
So, I suppose, here's to a solemn or at least less jubilant day of memorial, September 11th.
