Dick Cheney’s last minute shopping spree

Sensitive subject matter for sure, but kinda funny anyway. The thought of Dick Cheney going out to buy last minute presents for 9/11 had me laughing something fierce. “While Cheney is known by many to be cold and taciturn for the other 11 months of the year, those close to the vice president say there is something about the 9/11 season that puts a smile on his face and a spring in his step. Each Sept. 11 morning since 2001, Cheney has come to work donning a fireman costume and handed out small, thoughtful gifts to all White House staffers. In addition, at his home on 9/11 Eve, Cheney lays out large piles of presents for his children and grandchildren underneath the colorfully lit, six-foot-tall 9/11 towers that he sets up by the fireplace.” [The Onion]
