A 9/11 moment
August 11, 2005
How ever shall we remember the dead on September 11? What about some country music and a very long walk ... with dear old Donald:
The Pentagon would hold a massive march and country music concert to mark the fourth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in an announcement tucked into an Iraq war briefing today.
"This year the Department of Defence will initiate an America Supports Your Freedom Walk," Rumsfeld said, adding that the march would remind people of "the sacrifices of this generation and of each previous generation."

In which case, shouldn't we be marching something like every other day ? Just so we all get this straight. March on 9/11 to remember dead soldiers: proud patriot. March on any other day to do the same: America-hating commie.
