Obligatory Mention of the Day Fast Approaching

The newspaper stand in front of my apartment rental office has a big banner across it saying: "Special September 11th Remembrance Edition Coming Wednesday!"

Oh yes. Dead people, yay! We can sell more newspapers!

Many of the people who died in those towers had quite a lot of experience in capitalist moneymaking. I wonder if any of them actually thought to themselves as they leapt from the high windows, "My death is going to be an incredibly profitable event for some people!"

However, this is the absolute stupidest exploitation of September 11th I've ever seen. And it doesn't even involve moneymaking - which just goes to show that even without monetary motivations, human beings can still be every bit as stupid.
