Oh Google, My Darling
I was just wondering- for all the fun, interesting, and historical notes Google makes by altering it's logo, why the silence today?
Surely the greatest tragedy of modern American history deserves something.
There are a variety of strange and disturbing notions that I am picking up on, seven years down the road.
1) We, the United States of America, deserved 9-11, so we're actually embarassed by it
2) Bush has become such a villain in American eyes, and since 9-11 is practically his doing, we ignore it
3) What happened on September 11, 2001?
I wonder what sketchy knowledge, if any, my 14 year old students have of the event. Should I bring in pictures?
