One thing the Internet handles less well than World 1.0 is moments of meaningful silence. On the Internet, if you're silent, you're not there. But all I had yesterday was respectful quiet, and some prayer, and there were plenty of other voices to fill that silence, so no 9/11 post for me.

For 9/12 -- well, this isn't a political blog, and there are many better thinkers on that score (I rather liked libertarian blogger Jim Henley's post here and his post pointing to other writings here) -- but it seems to me that to live well, savor Monday as much as a Monday can be savored, remember to appreciate those you love, act with honor and have a little fun, is far from the worst response you could make to the violence junkies of this world.
