Dead Air

by

Where were you when you saw the sixth rebroadcast of the Today Show from September 11, 2001?

You won’t be at my house. We aren’t going to be watching any national tragedy-porn today, thank you. It’s still pretty fresh. I’m in no hurry to relive the experience with Katie, Matt, Al and Carlos the Janitor.

If they really want to make a meaningful statement, how about going off the air from 8:46 am until 10:28 am? Too bad NBC can’t sell boner pills and sub-prime loans to mouth breathers without some vicarious pathos and suffering by proxy to reel them in.

Although, the moments of hi-larity that come from watching Katie argue with an eye-fucking-witness about what kind of plane hit Tower Two and accidentally refer to the World Trade Center as a “national landmine” might make it worth the pain.

    I strive to be “surprisingly accurate”.
