What's Mallard raving about today?
9-11 anniversary, voting.
I will leave it to commenters to speculate just what Mallard would say constitutes "knowing the difference."
I have to focus on the stupidity of this statement: "It's still incredible to me that one day in history could make such a difference."
Given that history is replete with days that made "such a difference" (c.f., Pearl Harbor, Luther's 95 Theses) we can only surmise that Mallard knows absolutely nothing of history.
You know what Santayana said about those who cannot learn from history? What do you think he'd say about those who cannot even be bothered to try to learn it?
