Because the size and scope of 9/11 was so massive, I would venture to say that tens of millions of Americans simply could not absorb it all between family and work obligations. There was far too much speculation backed up by nothing. There was far too much being posted on the Internet that could not be substantiated. One could literally drown in the sheer number of articles and columns about that horrible day. Sifting through it all takes time. Time to read, research, file Freedom of Information Act requests and watch mountains of video. As I was home that day, I saw all of it unfold on TV and for weeks after, I kept up with it more than the average person simply because I do work at home.
