September 11: Another Year Has Passed, But Events Have Not Been Forgotten

It seems that the Guitar Hero 5 debacle is far from over, with Courtney Love actually having a point: Kurt Cobain rapping or singing a Bon Jovi song just doesn't feel right. His former bandmates claim that everybody was under the impression that the likeness would only be used for Nirvana songs, but once the character's been unlocked, you can use Cobain throughout the game, which really makes him look less legendary.

I had to visit the dentist today for a routine check-up and walked away with a clean bill of health, apart from the usual "brush more" comment. For people who know me, these visits are a big deal due to some childhood trauma, which I'll spare you the details of, and they always put a knot in my stomach.

Today is 9/11, the 8th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and the day that the world as we knew it changed. We remember the lives lost that day and think of the soldiers who have made the greatest sacrifice for our country. As a former military man, I have nothing but respect and admiration for the brave men and women in uniform who were -- and continue to be -- in harm's way and continue to serve our country, regardless of whether you believe that the cause is just.
