I Swore It Was One Person

Today I learned that the pictures below actually belong to six DIFFERENT women! I guess I had previously thought that they were all one and the same. But apparently, they are not. Huh. I think there's a dude out there with a whole lot of 'splainin' to do.

And by the way, for those of you who were expecting some sort of 09/11 related post, I couldn't possibly have come up with a new angle on any of it. I am a little bit in awe of how much people like rounded numbers. I mean, ten years. I'm not sure what makes this year more of a hoopla than year nine was or than year eleven will be, but people are going all out. I think I'd feel a little better about those sorts of things if a couple of things were different. One, I wish that there were buildings standing again where the Twin Towers once were. Why it has taken over ten years to build a couple of buildings (considering that the Empire State Building was built in a about a year in the middle of the Great Depression)? And two, I wish that all of these 09/11 anniversary commencement dealios would spur a little, just a little, discussion about the war in Afghanistan and/or the war in Iraq. But it's not. No talk about those wars. None. Maybe that's why all of this stuff seems a little hollow to me. It's fine to remember, but I really think that with stuff like this that we need these anniversaries to be able to look forward.
