When You Have a Birthday on September 11th

What do you do when you have a birthday on September 11th?

I spent most of the day at a neighbor's birthday party.

When the subject of the appropriateness of having a birthday celebration on September 11th came up the birthday boy said, "If I don't celebrate my birthday, the terrorists win."

I have no quarrel with his argument - even if it is motivated by beer. But the jihadists want to alter our way of life and for better or for worse drinking beer is part of our way of life (although not mine.)

However, next year I think I would like to be in New York.
