One of the most striking things about Watchmen is the fact that there isn't a team called the Watchmen. The only team of heroes that are eluded to are the Minutemen from the 40s and 50s. If they were to start a team, this would be the roster....except some end up exiled or dead at the end...hmmm..
Also, today is the tenth anniversary of the twin towers being attacked and destroyed. I was sitting in my dorm room at school when my roommate's girlfriend woke us up with the news. We thought it was a joke, then we saw the news cast and we were glued to the TV for the day...and school was cancelled for the day (one positive from all the negative....maybe).
Where were you?
