America isn’t at war. Soldiers are at war. America is at the mall.
George W. Bush should be proud, since that was the gist of one of his responses to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City—“ … go shopping more.”

Of course, Bush would have had to go to Iraq to read that observation. Matt Gallagher found it inscribed on the interior of a porta-potty wall.
