Gratuitous 9/11 post

Has this day become just another day? With 3/11 and 7/7, is the calender getting crowded with terrorist attacks that we don't bother to give proper names to anymore?

    What would you have us call it?

  3. Depends on the situation, I would suppose. "World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks" sound more formal and academics. 9/11 is snappier and quicker to say.

    3/11 should be Madrid Train bombings.

    7/7 should be called London subway bombings.
