And to dismiss something as unimportant: "That's so-o-o Sept. 10."

Such "terror humor" can easily break the bounds of respect and taste. But leave it to teens to relieve the stress of this ongoing crisis, and to keep adults mindful of their own word choices, such as "crusade," which is so-o-o past millennium.
