Wardrobe Malfunction .. or .. Ridiculous Journalism

9-11 … a day Americans will always remember. I remember where I was. And I remember the emotional roller coaster in the immediate days that followed. I remember the crowded churches that weekend. And I remember that America was more united than it had been in a long time before and since.

And every year, we honor those that lost their lives and remember the cost of freedom.

But this year, a photo of our First Lady circulated the twitter-verse that showed some people have way too much time on their hands and/or that people can be a bit ridiculous. So why do I discuss it? It’s a little funny. And it’s a little sad.

I guess it’s all about perspective and choosing to look for the positive … not the asinine.

What was it? Our First Lady wore a coat … black with some white stitching for style. The lower back of the coat had a slit for comfort, style, and movability. The trim had a white stitch (seen on the belt as well) and a button latch that also had the white stitching.

Here’s the rub … some saw the pic (from a distance at that) and said it was an intentional slap in the face of those in the twin towers. They stated the stitching was specifically done to represent a plane flying into the tower.

Me, it look more like the Washington monument with the elevator flying out. But I watch too many apocalyptic disaster movies.

It’s just a stitch. It’s … just … a … stitch.

What will we focus on? What dominates our minds? And why do we need to voice things just because we think them? Don’t get me wrong, I am pretty sarcastic at times … too much so. But I hope that most my thoughts are those which align with this great saying …

What a better place, better nation, better world it would be.

What are your thoughts about today?


Please forgive my ignorance of correct garment terminology. My extent of knowledge comes from the movie The Devil Wears Prada, and that is not a lot.
