So today is 9/11, which means at CNN and MSNBC, it’s Monday. Because 9/11 is that little thing that paled in comparison to January 6. Right? Now, for those of you under 30, it’s probably hard for you to appreciate what a jolt that day was to the country. Not since Pearl Harbor had we taken such a hit on the home front.
Here in New York, we were all walking around watching the skies. Usually, we look at the ground so we don’t step on needles, poop, or a passed-out Brian Kilmeade. But 22 years ago, you didn’t know what would come next, but you knew the threat was out there. It was a different time. The country pulled together and our federal agencies actually work together against Al Qaeda instead of surveilling parents who complained that their kids’ gym teacher wears a bra and a jockstrap. But those people were, by almost any metric, successful. The high point came when Usama bin Laden got a taste of old-time American frontier justice as Rob O’Neill used automatic weapons to ventilate his turban. Yippie ki-yay douchebag you’re not dealing with the French here.
