Sept. 11 disrespect

On Sept. 11, during the Pirates game against the Rangers in Texas, players from each team could be seen chatting and laughing in an asinine manner during the playing of “God Bless America” to remember our men, women and children who were murdered that day in 2001.

I asked myself two questions:

• Do we not respect anything anymore?

• Is it too much to ask adult men playing a game to, if not pay attention, then at least stand and not talk for a minute?
