Today is September 11 and ...

It's an important day. A day Americans remember thanks to the horrific events 7 years ago today. They're unveiling a monument at the Pentagon dedicated to those who died there on September 11. So, how can it be that there's so much discussion about lipstick, pigs, etc.?

It's great that Obama and McCain are jointly marking the anniversary in New York today. I guess it's great. I actually think it would be better if they had spent an hour (or better yet, two hours) discussing/debating September 11: what caused it, in hindsight what was the right response, and what should America be doing to avoid a repeat.
