It will be 9/1 tomorrow.
Four years before that was 9/1/01.
In a real emergency, Americans typically dial 911.
Said aloud these are both Nine-one-one.
There was this huge terrorist attack on the United States almost four years ago.
This was on 9/11.
Said aloud this is Nine-eleven.
Because who says September one-one?
Who counts ...eight, nine, ten, one-one, one-two, one-three...?
Why do people (or the beasts in men's clothes, e.g. President Bush) get this wrong?
Are they just trying to be cute with the emergency number thing or what?
...eh, whatever. There's bigger problems than newspeak sightings...
