We need a new name for 9/11Should September 11th be a national holiday? My answer, is "Hells yes!", although I'll admit I'm partially motivated by my cynical desire for another day off. On the other hand, if you look at the hullabaloo we raise on 9/11 and compare it to something like labor day, it certainly seems like 9/11 rates.
The biggest problem we face to getting a new national holiday is when 9/11 falls on a weekend. We can't very well mark calenders with "Friday, September 9th (September 11th observed)"--that's madness! We need to come up with another name. I don't have any great ideas, though: my attempts so far, "Firefighter's Day" and "Freedom Day", just don't have zazz. Anyone?
