9/11/81? I Blame the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

As Kathy Shaidle writes, “Journalists: your moral and intellectual superiors! Sorry, you still dutifully read a newspaper every day because…?”

Note the 1981(!) date on this photo caption she spotted, still online as of time of this post, for which I made a screen capture:

President Barack Obama hosts an iftar dinner, the meal that breaks the dawn-to-dusk fast for Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan, in the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, Friday, Aug. 13, 2010. For over a billion Muslims, Ramadan is a time of intense devotion and reflection. Obama emphasized the American tenet of religious freedom just as New York City is immersed in a deeply sensitive debate about whether a mosque should be built near the site of the World Trade Center that was destroyed during the September 11, 1981 terror attacks.

Don’t let Rosie O’Donnell or Van Jones see this; they’ll wonder why Reagan was so p.o.ed with Ed Koch.
