Not Bad...

weather: partially sunny
outside: 19°C
mood: contemplative

So, the September 11th bullshit is not as insane as I thought it would be.

Or maybe I've made really good choices as to what LJ users I beFriend. And they've made good choices of Friends as well. There's a fairly strong anti-"9/11" sentiment from everyone on my Friends list. My FriendsFriends page and everyone that I have bookmarked for reading is ranting that this stupid thing getting so out of hand, Bush is an ass, etc.

No one I know is making cheesy September 11 graphics, posting stupid images of American flags waving like an animated fractal as opposed to real wind. No one is passing me stupid Internet chain letters involving forged Nostradamus quotes - last year, I threatened to singe the ass off of anyone who did that.

Or maybe I'm just getting really good at ignoring people and things.

I'm not writing what I think. You don't want to know what I think. Trust me, you don't. I've learned that people trulytruly do not want to know what I think even though they're adamant that they "value my opinion". I've only written a short thing to someone I really trusted today.

Re:
Nope, we get it plastered all over our TVs and newspapers as well because a lot of our media is US-based. The spin is quite different, it's "What does it mean for Canada if the US goes to war? What's Canada's position as the peace-keeping voice in the UN?" ... that kinda thing.

One of the editorials I read was basically saying that Canada isn't very separate from the US. The US treats Canada as an extra market, etc, etc.
