In just a month and a day it'll be the 11th of September. That's an important date, somehow. Our friends at Raw Story had an item up the other day that said 30% of all Americans don't know what year we're talking about when we refer to "September 11th".

Maybe they're thinking of 1973, when a coup-d'etat, backed by Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger and some of their CIA friends, caused the death of Salvador Allende and wiped out the democratically elected government of Chile.

Or maybe they're thinking about some other year. I don't know.

How about you? What are you thinking about today?
