Muslim Woman Shopping For The American Dream In DeclineWe experienced an unusual time warp yesterday: For a second it was 09/09/09 09:09:09.

Bailey took a cell phone image on the 9th second of the 9th minute of the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month of 2009 at Tysons Corner Center in McLean, Virginia. This image is titled "Muslim Woman Shopping For The American Dream In Decline."

Did anybody else capture something special on 09/09/09 at exactly 09:09:09?
