This column was supposed to go up September 11th.

I didn't know what to say that day.

A lot of other people did seem to know what to say. Some of it was moving, some of it was thoughtful or insightful, some of it was thought-provoking, some of it was trite, and some of it was simply tasteless.

And a lot of it was simply designed to make the person saying it look good.

And so, to be honest, I'd rather not be a part of all that. It isn't that I want to ignore it, but I don't want to add to the noise, either.

And so there's no column this week. Please come back next week.
