Now, 21 years later it’s hard to even remember the time before the attacks. I was only 20 when the towers fell. There was a brief flash of national unity before it all went belly up and we found ourselves mired in not one, but two wars in the Middle East.
By the end of George W. Bush’s second term, the global economy had collapsed after the inevitable housing bubble popped. The iPhone kicked off a new wave of social media and connectedness that has had both positive and negative impacts on our lives.
The rise of social media has changed the way we interact with one another, and not always for the better. Politics have grown increasingly divisive, and the COVID-19 pandemic followed by rapid inflation have made the world feel more grim than any of us thought possible on September 10th, 2001. It’s a brave new world, folks.
But enough about all that. Let’s do this Wordle.

The Answer: Wordle answer #449 Credit: Erik Kain This was a pretty tough word but thankfully I got pretty lucky with my third guess. Knife didn’t do all that well, but after guessing quart for my second guess, I had three yellow letters and only nine possible solutions left, down from 252. While I guessed all new letters with quart to try to eliminate as many as possible, for my third guess I used each of the letters I’d already gotten.
Tidal was luckier than I could have hoped for, placing the TI in green at the beginning but also ruling out all options for the ‘A’ which I knew now had to go in the fifth spot. So now I just started sounding out words. TI—something—A.
I actually thought of tibia really quickly, though I wasn’t expecting it would be right. Little did I know, that was the only remaining possible solution. The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone, the leg bone’s connected to the knee bone .
