Sept 11, 2005

At about 3 minutes to 1 PM, Channel 2 was showing live coverage of the annual reading of the names of 9/11 victims. My first thought was "I hope they're not going to overrun the start of the football game for this."

Then they suddenly pulled away at the end of the letter W and said that coverage would continue on their Web site. They switched to live NFL coverage, which consisted of Jessica Simpson warbling "America the Beautiful" and shaking like Joe Cocker. And my first thought was "Why on earth did they preempt the end of the 9/11 readings for this?"

I am badly conflicted right now.

How badly you're conflicted should depend on how your team did.
