The sweet smell of apathy

February 1, 2003

I’m standing in the kitchen unwrapping my new NINJA TURTLES: The Movie DVD, and my dad says “The shuttle went down!” and I say, “What shuttle?”

17 years ago, families sat huddled around their televisions with tear filled eyes as they watched the beautiful Challenger collapse into nothingness. Today, we’re making note to stay away from the scattered pieces of Columbia debris as we flip through channels in search of MacGyver re-runs. Radiation alert!

Things only seem to get more interesting.

Or less… I’m not sure which.
