Cut on the Bias provides this howler about the first divorce to spring from the Sept. 11 terrorst attacks, thanks to a silenced cell phone.
Update: In passing this link along, I failed to make clear that it's an urban legend, which CotB has acknowledged. I frequently visit the Urban Legends Reference Pages; it's a fascinating site that debunks many email-forwarded stories (often pointing out yawning gaps in logic) and confirms others. I'd seen this little tidbit before, but I didn't make that context clear to my readers. I apologize to all (six) of you.
By the way, Barbara and David P. Mikkelson of the Urban Legends Reference Pages also pass along this true story about Starbucks pulling an ad because of perceived similarities to the World Trade Centers. They provide a photo of the ad, wonder if any "depiction of two similar, side-by-side objects taller than they are wide is now going to be considered an unacceptable reminder." I'm reminded of the petition on an Internet poll site over the title of the second Lord of the Rings movie, although that poll has been "suspended temporarily due to a lack of maintenance by the petition author," according to the site. (I still wonder if the original petition was a joke, but it's clear that some people took it seriously.)
