This is really worthing looking at.

I have mixed feelings about all of the hoopla surrounding this anniversary. I have mixed feelings about possible attacks on Iraq. I have no mixed feelings about the fact that we all need to take some time to think about what happened. I hear people saying they're going to stay away from TVs and the Internet because they don't want to get caught up in everything. I want to get caught up in it. We're all so far removed and it's unbelievably important to take everything in. As far as I'm concerned, I can't watch enough programming, have enough details. I want to know everything. I want to memorize the death toll, I want to remember how many lives were lost, to find out exactly what is going on in Afghanistan and with the Taliban, to hear about Iraq and why the weapons inspectors failed. Isn't lack of information part of why this happened in the first place?

And, God, do not blame the media. It's so easy to blame the media. It's bullshit. Think of something original.
