Picture This

In the tradition of most other sites, here's where I was, five years ago yesterday:

My then-fiancee called me from work with the news about the attack. I immediately switched on the TV and watched for about three hours...and it was pretty much the same footage, over and over. My brain had a hard time wrapping around the concept. The Towers. The Pentagon. And (almost) the White House.

It got so depressing I turned the news off and started watching Monty Python.


Humor helped me get a grip. And it continues to do so, even today.

For instance: the monster who started all this always wears a turban. Ever wonder why?

And here's a video showing how we REALLY beat the Taliban.

Not to mention how folks felt.


So get out and have a giggle.

Be seeing you.
