Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Happy Grandparents' Day! And Other Stories...

It is always good to have a day in which we honor our elders - they who set the stage for us to fumble the ball in! But I am digressing right off the bat here...

Tomorrow will be the date marking the fifth anniversary of that tragic and momentous event that shook America to its core; when they were finally hit on their own turf, whether they were taken by surprise or allowed themselves to be hit is another story... Yes, I know, another digression...
It just comes off as too convenient a coincidence that our dear Dubya was quoted saying that "the only time to use Social Security money is in times of war, times of recession, or times of severe emergency", a mere five days before hitting 'trifecta' with the 9/11 attacks of 2001. As it was way too convenient that a "war broke out" just when there was a need to deflect attention from said recession, the oil craving and Dubya's ineptitude, all at once... But I am ever digressing here, aren't I?

Our grand-parents may be going soon - or they are gone already. All the more reason to honor them today.
Over 3000 lives were lost five years ago - all the more reason to honor them tomorrow (tomorrow being in bold because, in Canada, with their reverse near-Dubyan logic, they are not sure when to do that it seems. At all, eh? The illustrious -to some- CBC will air more than one 9/11 documentary TODAY... But notning commemorative is scheduled for tomorrow, because they will be airing another damnable "VANITY FEST" THINGIE aka another award ceremony! This one will even herald the (mercifully temporary) return to television of one Canadian "icon" Anne Murray. Yay. For the life of me, I cannot believe that the Dalai Lama would want to accept becoming an honorary Canadian citizen, but I guess anywhere is better than oppression... Digression again; don't mention it...

I would like today to mention another one worth honoring and remembering too.
Anna Lindh, a Swedish politician, who was stabbed to death on this day, back in 2003.
Lindh was a Swedish Social Democrat and an important proponent of the European Union. She was Chairman of the Council of the European Union in 2001 and, at the time of her murder, a prime candidate to become the next President of the Social Democrats and Prime Minister of Sweden. She was attacked just prior to a Swedish referendum on the Euro, at the height of a public campaign she led for the approval of the currency.
