Haste subtracts two days from 9/11. Right, 99?

You know about 9/11, right?

Good. Let’s do the math:

This year is 2011, and it is September.

So the anniversary of 9/11 must be on Sept. 9.

Hurry. Put that in a headline.

Ouch!

The stories about the 10th anniversary of 9/11 will only increase in the next several days. So when you write a headline for one of those stories, stop and think.

Unless you really mean the anniversary of 9/9.

Or is that 99?
