As everyone knows, today is the 8th year anniversary of the terrible 9/11 attacks. Many people, companies and organizations are doing things to remember the day. A lot of people are asking why there is no logo from Google for today. The quick answer is that Google does not do Google Doodles (aka logos) for sad days like this, they typically only do these types of logos for happier occasions.
Oh boo hoo. Google only wants to acknowledge happy days. They justify this by pointing out, "Look! We've partnered with others on Make History." Yeah, I'm sure the majority of people know to look for that web site. Would it kill Google to at least link to Make History when you click on the Google logo? But no, you have to do a fairly in-depth search to locate this piss-poor excuse and rationalization.
I am going to remove Google as my home page and look for another search engine. Too bad, we've had a long history together but this is inexcusable in my book.
