Man...I just watched A&E's "Flight 93". It touched me. Granted, the three glasses of scotch I drank watching it might also have played a role. Do you remember the weird fascination you felt as we watched the world change forever? Two weeks later I was on a plane from Denver to Orlando. As I watched the movie, I was more twisted up then when I watched the real thing unfold. It's almost like it has taken 5 years for the enormity of that day to finally come into focus. I had chills run up and down my spine as I thanked God that I am not from a bankrupt culture that has nothing but death and destruction to offer its best and brightest. What was even more bizarre were the intermittent commercials for everything from Beano to unemployed barbarians looking for work as a result of Capital One cutting interest rates. The vapid consumerism of our culture in stark contrast with images of a smoking crater on a Pennsylvania farm was almost too much. Are we really that shallow? I hope not. In spite of Ted Kennedy, I'm still proud to be an American, and the next time I see an Islamic extremist I'm gonna slam my elbow into his greasy grill. That ought even it up. Actually, I was so worked up just watching this program that I had this insane desire to put into words how I felt. It being 3am, I figured it would probably be best just to send you these random thoughts before I try and formalize them. So weird, one minute flight 93 is careening towards earth at 400 knots, then a quick word from our sponsors. Apparently laptops are on sale at Office Depot. The Burger King just intercepted a pass and runs for a touchdown. Now back to the destruction of our culture. I'm hungry.
