Anachronism. . . . Spooky.

This made sense, late in the twentieth century.

In the present context, it reads very very differently.

President Ronald Reagan signed this proclamation, in August 1987. gives a little of the history of the "911" emergency number, and states that we should pay attention to things about "911" ... on September 11.

"Protecting the lives and property of citizens is one of government's fundamental responsibilities..."

This also appeared in one of my blog comments a few months ago, yes.
