9/11 anniversary: Google goes Doodle-less
Google Doodle-watching is a favorite pastime for many Internet visitors -- regardless of which browser they use. It's often a fun, pop-culture savvy adornment that Google layers over its homepage nameplate to honor things such as Freddie Mercury's birthday, the comic genius of Lucille Ball, green aliens and the Flintstones.
But on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, America woke up to find the most appropriate Google Doodle of them all: nothing.
Google is Doodle-less for Sunday, with a simple black ribbon to commemorate the nearly 3,000 men, women and children who died 10 years ago.
