Supernews Uncle Sam on 9/11
Uncle Sam appears to be developing a mature approach to the events of 9/11, 2001, if the SuperNews! treatment is anything to go by. Uncle Sam is busy telling us how the United States is getting on with living safely when he’s rudely interrupted by 9/11. However, Uncle Sam does not succumb to 9/11’s attempts to create an environment of fear. What follows is a dialogue that explores healthy and unhealthy responses to terrorist attacks. Listen out for the reference to Budweiser being produced in Belgium.
