Last year, I took exception to the maudlin celebration of death that accompanied the fifth anniversary of the events of 9/11, down to the moments of silence and the playing of Taps over the intercom at work.
Well, it happened again today ("Patriot Day"), Taps included.
How long did we commemorate Dec. 7, 1941, with special ceremonies on that day? Did the British whine about particular dates while they were being bombed during WWII? These 9/11 commemorations have now lasted longer than the entire Second World War.
