I Feel That a Feel-Good Feeling Feels Pretty Good
Does anyone else remember the feeling in the air after 9/11? I'm talking about the public social mood in America (it might have been felt elsewhere, but I don't know, since I don't travel outside the US). People seemed to be genuinely more polite and courteous to others everywhere I went, for about two weeks. Then it dried up and we went back to being our normal crusty selves. At least it's little head pops up during Christmas, even if only for a few days. It would be nice to see it stick around longer. I apologize if that comes across as a bit preachy. I'm as crusty and annoying as any American can be, so I know it has to start with me, myself and I. I'm going to try.
