My random thoughts and comments on life and the world.
After seven long, agonizing years the Detroit Lions finally, finally, finally fired Matt Millen. Like other masochists Lions fans I've been waiting for this to come. The man took a team that periodically got into the playoffs and turned them into worse team in foot. I guess after a about half dozen quarterbacks and three coaches Ford finally got it through his thick skull that the problem was Millen.
Unfortunately, it was too late to save this season.
Today is Thursday, the 11th of September, 2008 A.D. It's the day after Wednesday, the 10th of September, 2008 A.D. and the day before Friday, the 12th of September, 2008 A.D. This would be an unremarkable day except that seven years ago this morning 19 men bordered four planes, commandeered those plains, and plowed them into both towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Pennsylvania countryside when the passengers were about to retake the fourth plane. Now, this day is called 9/11.
