Where Would We Be Without Salon.Com?

Ah yes, the best way to remember and honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Speeches? Memorial Services? Candle light vigils?

My husband and I were playing Jenga afterward. When the Jenga collapsed, I shouted “North Tower.” Then the second round of the game, we shouted, “South Tower.” Now we don’t call it Jenga anymore. We call it North Tower.

On the one hand, Salon.Com’s inevitable bankruptcy can’t come soon enough. On the other hand, I understand better why Eric Alterman fawns over this rag so much.
