The Saddest September 21.

For some reason, this is the saddest September 21 so far.

For whatever it's worth, happy birthday to Armenia.

Update: The funny thing is that even the most jingoistic blogs and such did not call yesterday an "Independence Day" but a birthday. Observer was one of the handful that still calls it an independence day. Garbis wondered about the depressing day, too.

The most cheerful was perhaps the canned message from the President:


Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release September 21, 2009

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Armenian National Day

The people of the United States join the people of Armenia in celebrating Armenia’s day of independence today. We deeply value the many cultural and historic ties that bind our two countries. The United States gains strength as a nation from the contributions of so many Americans of Armenian ancestry. We congratulate the people of Armenia on their national day.

I found this to be a very depressing Independence day. The only good part was meeting with Unzipped and Blansh in the evening... but that was rather unrelated to the Independence day.
