Most American media seem focused on the 9/11 anniversary. The foreign press are criticizing how Dubya squandered much goodwill by insisting on unilateralism and using military might more than diplomatic nuance. People are on alert for Al-Qaeda or Internet trojans. But in a large sense, today is business as usual.
But I want a nap. Is it so wrong to commemorate this tragedy by curling up under blankets and snoozing for a couple hours? I don't think so! Especially if I feel refreshed and ready to handle all the evils of the world afterwards.
I promise I will vote for the leading Democratic contender, no matter how odious he is to me, if I can just have a nap.
FINE. I'll just drink caffeine and be a hellion for the rest of the day. That'll larn ya. HMMPH.
