Forgetting Twin Towers, Remembering Wall Street

9-11 Cartoon, originally uploaded by rbtenorio.

"Crisis" ... "catastrophe" ... "collapse" ... These are words you'd likely associate with the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01, right? Wrong. Eight years after the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, people are using these words to describe a different anniversary ... that of a fateful stretch in September that sunk Lehman Brothers last year. Satan and Frank Faust assess this development in the latest episode of "The Devil Made Me Blog It"!

I fail to see why this is sad. 9/11 happened one day and was over with a small number of people dead. Drunk driving deaths are the equivalent of about 13 9/11s per year. In fact.... serial killers alone have been responsible for the equivalent of 3 9/11s since the real one happened.

The financial collapse has a more direct effect on more people. 9/11 was a lot of sound and fury that signified nothing. It was one small groups greatest achievement. It was them attacking us.

The Financial collapse was our own fault. That makes it a lot worst. 9/11 was one day, we will live with the fallout from this collapse for a long time to come.

It really is a bigger tragedy.

On top of that, the only people who benefit from "Remembering 9/11" are the people who caused it.
