I was in high school on 9/11/01. Most classes we spent watching the news on TV. By 7th period, we were watching the local news on Fox 11 and the news anchor said something to the effect of, "We will suspend regular programming and stay on the air to bring you the latest news."
My classmate groaned, "Aww man, no Simpsons tonight?!?!"
He got yelled at by our teacher.
