In a stunning move, the City of Kennewick will not be officially sanctioning a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial near the Southridge Sports Complex. Budget concerns seem to be the reasoning, but that reasoning is not reasonable for the Kennewick Firefighters who, feeling doing the ceremonies only on benchmark year occasions wasn't good enough, posted this:

On Monday, it'll be 16 years since that terrible day that continues to live in 21st century infamy. We have a hallowed memorial featuring a 35 foot piece of steel from Ground Zero.

Never Forget?

Except in anniversary years that don't end in 5 or zero?

Uh, no.

Thank you firefighters.
