The attacks that occured on September 11, 2001: Still a day of press releases

September 11, 2007

Press releases issued yesterday and today:

Statements by Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Dennis Kucinich and EU VP Franco Frattini.

A call for stronger cockpits.

Law firm Thatcher Profitt’s involvement in the 911 Living Memorial.

And my favorite so far, hawks flags. At least they’re made in the U.S.

There’s nothing really wrong with any of this I suppose. I’m sure there is some useful discussion that can occur for example, as a result of something like Muslim scholar Dr. Ali Shehata’s statement.

UPDATE: Dr. Shehata’s video statement can be found here.

Although I can’t help remembering the deft touch of The Onion upon publishing their first issue after the attacks. My favorite piece is about beef stewster Dinty Moore’s support of our leaders.

This publicist would prefer a contemplative day without media and press releases. The lengthy headline is resistance to the term 9/11. It always felt like a piece of inappropriate branding to me.
