9/11


Mom remembers where she was when JFK was shot. I told her that it was a righteous memory; a part of history. All I'll have to remember, I said, was where I was when OJ led the LAPD on his low-speed chase.

I wish those words were still true.

I remember where I was five years ago.

oj a man who got away with killing his spouse. a hero among many of the african american community because he got away with a crime. a nigger got away with something for the first time. maybe we should honor him and make movies about how fun it is to get away with KILLING A CHEATING WHORE...

anon,

Cyberstalking is a crime. This sounds like a threat to me as does a comment I saw elsewhere today.

I don't appreciate my blog or the blogs of others being used for your cause.

Take care of your anger issues.

Anon came in here wearing a KKK shirt I think, you should've kicked him out the second he opened the door.

I remember watching OJ lead the cops around at 50 m.p.h too.

If you have a stat counter that keeps details like the IP address of visitors, I would encourage you to match that comment up with an IP and contact the FBI.

I'll never forget where I was 5 years ago and I wish that OJ was the only disaster memory that I had too...

Mist1, dont know about another post but i am an upset southern gentleman who doesnt like someone mentioning OJ and 9/11 in the same breath!!!

 
At 7:58 AM, Blogger Cheeky said...

I remember the OJ thing too....amazing....

But on a happier note - I am in CHARLESTON this week - woohoo!! Stay tuned for updates (I didn't want to post today - I wanted to leave up my tribute)

how true - amazing how this date will be forever etched in our minds. I can't believe it's been 5 years already. It still feels like a horrible, horrible dream.

 
At 9:49 AM, Blogger Mr. G said...

Mist....did Anonymous really send a second message claiming to be a Southern Gentleman, while still hiding his identity??? I'm offended!!! As a Gentleman, it really irks me when someone who can't be bothered to admit to being a small minded idiot by signing their name claims to be anything like me.

 
At 9:56 AM, Blogger Meg said...

I agree, its hard to believe its been five whole years already...I remember thinking that it couldn't be happening, and I remember thinking that it would forever be etched into our heart and souls, and so it should be...lest we never forget!

 
At 10:14 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

mr. g,

He is nothing like you.

meg,

Well said.

At 5:36 PM, Blogger C said...

I remember OJ and the low speed chase. I still lived in Los Angeles at the time and I could see the slow moving vehicle on the 405. But I don't remember the date as we do for today.

 
At 6:02 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

Will do.

I'll just say this: powerlessness. I felt: oh, so this is the fear anxiety sleeplessness hel that others have felt forever, children refugees terrorized victims in small villages and big cities. The Age of Innocence is gone. So this is what it's like. But of course we are all powerless and power is an illusion. I don't think we've learned that. Or, we've forgotten that. Shortly after the attacks the writer Pete Hamill of NYC wrote in Cigar Aficionado magazine how he went to a poor villa in Mexico. The people were largely unfazed. This is life for them. This is how it always has been. Instead, we prefer a bubble in our culture that says, death does not exist.

pawlie,

Incredibly good point. Thanks.

I know it's happened but it's still unbelievable. I honoured two WTC victims on my site yesterday.

It hardly seems enough

icl,

I'll check you out again. I must have missed those yesterday.

Well, I believe most hate speech is covered under the First Ammendment as free speach (what's the FBI gonna say?).... We're still free to think as we will and most people will disagree w/ him.

Anyway, I think most people will forget about OJ (wasn't that important anyway) compared to 9/ll.

 
At 8:04 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

matt,

That's why I approved anon's comment.

I guess that forgetting about OJ in the post 9/11 US was kinda my point. It just doesn't seem like such an important memory anymore.

 
At 12:04 AM, Blogger The Naked Nerd said...

My mom remembers the JFK assassination. A story worth listing too.

 
At 4:31 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

nerd,

Mom's story totally enthralled me.
