'That's So-o-o Sept. 10'

It didn't take long for trend-setting teens to come up with slang and jokes related to Sept. 11. Messy bedroom? "Ground zero." Something too spicy: "Like weapons-grade salsa."

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.
