The events of September 11, 2001
, has resulted in the movie The Siege
being pulled from the shelves of Blockbuster Video
s and Hollywood Video
s 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. (http://www.msnbc.com/news/628592.asp?0sp=w12b3)
I understand a need to be respectful....but our society is weird.
