9.11.2006

Commemoration.

At work and with bloggers I know, there's been a debate about whether it's appropriate to blog on the 9/11 anniversary. A few candidates locally have pulled their ads today, and some events have been rescheduled til tomorrow out of sensitivity.

Not so for South Carolina State Superintendent of Education candidate Karen Floyd: the Republican planned a $1,000 a head Dove Shoot followed by a $100-per-couple dinner. Alas, Republicans killing doves on 9/11--could it get more symbolic than that?--won't happen: after protests from PETA and blogwide ridicule, the fundraiser has been rescheduled for October 3.

Are 78-year old men invited?

Depends on if they're bringing their faces....
