It's a sad sad sad sad world

This article is a bit disturbing at the beginning. There are folks selling "Ground Zero" hats and commemorative cups in New York, and even snow globes with the WTC towers in them. Capitalism will overcome anything, especially good taste and decorum.

No one ever lost money by underestimating the good taste or intelligence of the American public.

As long as there is someone willing to buy, someone will step forward to sell. <-- fundamental law of nature. :)

It's just sick the way people will capitalize on a tragedy. Even as soon as one week after 9/11, there were guys in my town selling all sorts of patriotic, "thumb your nose at the world" t-shirts, and even though they were supposed to be "positive", it really bugged me, because these assholes weren't out to "unify Americans in patriotism", they were looking to make MONEY.
It's disrespectful that.
