Today a TMZ videographer walked around a college campus documenting the stupidity that TMZ hath wrought. They found six or seven separate San Diego State students who could not tell them the year 9/11 happened. Interestingly, I spent a lot of time in San Diego post 9/11, and I vaguely recalleded some of actual 9/11 hijackers befriending a group of San Diego State students during their time in America...

and why yes, they did! According to this source, 9/11 hijacker Nawaf Alhazmi actually "spent a lot of time at the San Diego State University library, surfing the Web.." And learning to hate us? Um, yeah. All but one of these fine young scholars is a woman, probably one who is late for her tanning salon appointment right now, sort of like we are realllly late for our Jim Beam.

This is a military town. Swabbies & jarheads. Veterans—all of whom seem angry or troubled about something about which they will not speak. Lots of first & second generation catholics, and catholic priests. Lots of people making money off illegals. Lots of racists. Lots of "let god sort 'em out" types. Getting our own 900 acre Blackwater compound. The majority of my students can't figure out the main idea of a two paragrpah letter from Thomas Jefferson about science. I get several students a year who seem to think being large & aggressive means you don't have to learn anything. I had a whole office full of people pissed at me for months (two of them started calling "The John" by my name—nice) when I kept insisting that Iraq would be easy to take but difficult to hold...and it had nothing to do with 9/11. Tim LaHaye. Roger Hedgecock. The Duke-stir. The institute for Creation Research. Awful houses in awful neighborhoods for $450K. Kim Stanley Robinson once asserted that the West Coast was the ultimate expression of "Western Civilization,"—they got here, couldn't go any further, and by god, did it right.

He got that goddamn right.
