iivel: Popcorn Johnny: Lando Lincoln: OMG WHY DO NO TV NETWORKS GIVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE EVERY DECEMBER 7TH AT 7:53AM HDT?

Because the Germans are our buddies and we've forgiven them for the whole bombing Pearl Harbor thing.

The Germans?

There's a difference between "never forget" and "let's hump the remains of remembrance". Industrial paper accidents are more deadly than terrorism. So remember that next time you wipe.

Gig103: Good for NBC. A moment of silence is enough to get people to flip channels. If they land on NBC before they get to the cable networks, they might stay.


If I landed on a station featuring the Kardashians/Jenners/douchebags, my next action would be a fork through my eyeballs.

The US news media is New York based, biased, and centered.

So obviously they're more sensitive about 9/11 than the country as a whole.

Funny, the people I notice going on and on about 9/11/AMERIKUH!/NEVARFARGET/PATRIOJIZM are the same people who think NYC should be obliterated because of snootiness, business, Jewishness, or otherwise. And none of them have ever spent any time there, nor do they live anywhere near a target rich environment. They also seem to forget about the Pentagon and United 93 more than New Yorkers do. Two that I know personally had a bunch of armchair hero comments about 93, and neither of them have ever been on an airliner.

Yeah, that is probably it. A lot of people from my town were killed so it is hard for me to understand how people are comparing this to a paper mill accident. But I suppose it all depends on where you are from.

Just seems like a bad decision on NBC's part.

And back further to the Civil War...look at the Gettysburg Address which is pretty much the first "never forget" for us. Yet today we have a chunk of the population that believes that the Civil War was wrong, that the states rights battle was not settled, that slavery was OK for the economy at that time. And the talk of secession has not been greater since the 1850s.

Apparently we forgot. And most folks can't begin to tell you when the Civil War ended...Or the War to end all wars or even WW2 for all that. We tend to forget everything that is not of our own generation, which we seem to deem more special and important than all others.

I dont think anyone is upset but you dont find it curious at all? Why would they do that?

I think I would have the same "what were they thinking?" reaction if they had Paris Hilton talking about her new merkin instead of going to the president at a memorial for the Oklahoma City Bombing.

It isnt rage worthy, it is just really strange.

There is some major 9/11 backlash in this thread. Where does it come from? Why is everyone so ho hum about it?

My not so cool post 9-11 story. One year after,I was on a New Jersey Transit bus to Philadelphia. It had to go through Fort Dix Army Base and for some paperwork reason, an elderly couple who worked on that base was not allow to enter. Another feisty lady yelled at this large Master Sergeant MP with a sidearm,"it's been over a year now! Give it a rest!!"

The MSgt quietly said to her,"Lady,I have had a rough day and I am not in a good mood." Then in only a voice she could hear,he read her the riot act and she kept silent after that.

Mytch: Being patriotic is like being religious. If you want to be, that's great. If you go around trying to shame other people for not being as patriotic as you, then you're an arsehole.


Fox does both, does that mean it has a double-barreled arsehole?

11 years is a long time to beat off about your dead mother/spouse at every family reunion. After a while it gets pathetic, and then it just gets annoying - it changes for everyone, but people who truly can't let go are usually referred to counseling, not lauded. We all remember, most of us get sad and a little angry when we think about it and see the flags at half mast today. We also remember that the men behind it are all violently dead, the disasters of two wars that followed, and the endless petty bickering over the site, to say nothing of having seen the same tributes and outpourings for so many years now that they lose a bit of the effect.

A moment of silence isn't bad. Personal reflection never is. The hours of endless what does 9/11 mean to me surrounding that is just attention whoring.

Most of the overt jingoism of the day is probably affected for the admiration of others, anyway, like crocodile tears over dear old mom to get in your aunt's and uncles' good graces. Meh.

Because its been over a farking decade, to be honest with you. All of these gestures year after year are starting to seem fake and ring hollow. This "moment of silence" is starting to mean as much as a yellow ribbon car magnet or a flag lapel pin. It's just a goddamn show and I'd rather they do nothing at all than some sort of compulsory "I'm sadder than you" dick waving contest.

HotWingConspiracy: They kept it up for a decade. It's ok to be done with it.

A nice list of everything else we've moved on from.

Remembah the Great Texas School Explosion of '37!


Here's the thing, I think that 9-11 is glorified to a creepy level in certain circles, and that moving on is necessary to heal. And I don't think constantly genuflecting to the ghosts of that day is the way to move on.

At the same time, the list you provided is bullshiat, for a couple of reasons:
Other than 9-11, the only other thing on that list intentionally brought by the hands of other people is the Lusitania, an act that occurred during a declared war and with plenty of warning, including the Germans taking out ads in the New York Times saying "We are going to sink the Lusitania, you shouldn't sail on it." The rest are unfortunate acts of nature or accidents that ended up having dire consequences for lots of people.

Also, I'll bet anyone with a loved one who died on TWA 800 or during hurricane Andrew still thinks it's a pretty big deal. Until 9-11, no one I counted among my friends had been killed at the hand of another person, certainly not several at once whose only common threads were knowing me and being at the World Trade Center. Up until that point, I thought Worcester was going to be the worst disaster for the fire service in my lifetime. I didn't know anyone who died on flight 800 or in the perfect storm, so other than pity for the people affected I really don't have much to move on from. I've been told more than once on Fark that I need to "get over it" or "move on" because I object to Hulk Hogan beating down the towers or the picture of the guy falling screaming "FfarkK." I guess there's something wrong with me, because after 11 years I should be able to see the humor in the jumper who could very well be my friend's father, who worked on an upper floor, or Hulk wading around in a pile of rubble that contained the remains of several friends.

I'm at peace with 9-11, though the thought of it still makes me sad. Bell-ringings, name-readings and moments of silence are nothing more than an opportunity to show orthodoxy and appropriate reverence to what is apparently becoming a national holy day.
