It's Not Just Miss South Carolina

8/30/2007 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlin Upton should feel very proud today. It seems she's not the only young person in America who appears to be a little less than informed. Christian activist and author Mark Dice dropped by San Diego State University to see how many of tomorrow's leaders know what year 9/11 happened.


Apparently, the unsuspecting >students couldn't quite remember. Perhaps if Mark had given them a hint -- like the year the Mariah Carey's cinematic masterpiece "Glitter" was released, or perhaps the year that Britney Spears' "Slave" song topped the charts. Come on Mark, give 'em somethin' to work with! It is understandable though, that collegians would be more likely to remember the last time Britney had a hit rather than the day that changed America forever. Oh Brit Brit! Ding Dang!

Over 2,700 people lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Maybe if more people remembered the past we wouldn't be so doomed to repeat it.

2001!!!! How can you not remember that?? It changed the landscape of one of our greatest cities forever let alone set a series of events in motion that we're still fixing today! I'm just flabbergasted at your stupidity.

TMZ -- This is a non-celebrity story.

I might as well pick up the newspaper rather than risk getting fired, yet again, for loggin onto TMZ while at work. Stick to celeb-news and make it work my while, would ya'?

This really pisses me off. Maybe because I live in NY, I dont know, but I will never ever forget that date.

I think the kids in school today are too interested in what's not important than what is really going on in the world. We lost more people that day than we did at Pearl Harbor!

AND TO THINK, THIS IS OUR FUTURE GENERATION
