I thought I would probably be remiss if I didn’t at least nod in the direction of New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania on this anniversary of the September 11 attacks. I also thought it would be in poor taste to say what I think about all that has transpired since and should simply say, may those who died continue to rest in peace. But you know, considering that Washington is throwing a stinkin’ 9/11 party today, with a country music concert no less, I don’t know why I shouldn’t vent. But I won’t. It doesn’t seem like a party kind of day, does it?



 

You need sugar. We insist.

Stopped by the Dunkin Donuts drive-up squawk box to order a fresh brew this morning.

DD: May I take your order please?
Me: Yes, could I have a large coffee, cream only, please?
DD: That’s a large regular?
Me: No, a large coffee with cream, no sugar.
DD: So, that’s a large regular with extra cream?
Me: No, I’d like a large Regular WITHOUT the sugar.
DD: Oh. That’s a large with just cream?
Me: YES!

I drove around and picked up the coffee. It had sugar in it.
