The events of September 11, 2001, has resulted in the movie The Siege being pulled from the shelves of Blockbuster Videos and Hollywood Videos nationwide in an attempt to avoid impropriety.

I found this out when I attempted to rent it tonight and was informed it was not available right now, that likely it would be put back on the shelves in a week or two.

By the same token, mentioning or showing the image of the World Trade Center towers has become taboo. (

I understand a need to be respectful....but our society is weird.
