19th anniversary of 9/11 falls in the middle of another national tragedy

The United States commemorates the 19th anniversary of 9/11 with the coronavirus killing about as many people every three days as were killed on that one awful day we all remember so clearly, with its then-unthinkable list of names of those lost. Donald Trump, who took a few minutes on 9/11 to brag, falsely, that he now had the tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and whose administration has been withholding millions of dollars from a program for Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firefighters and medics with 9/11-related health problems, sent Mike Pence to the ceremony.

Trump instead headed to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, for the ceremony at the site of the Flight 93 crash. Former Vice President Joe Biden spent the morning at the New York City event before going to Shanksville, with his campaign having suspended advertising for the day.
