    Seems to me that news of this would be all over the place. I think it is a scam. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Did you guys read it? I read it in the way that it was a sarcastic objection to the commercialization of mass death and destruction. Its under the "about us" part. If you dont want to get worked up, Dont look at the message board though.

    "As a resident living two blocks south of what used to be the World Trade Center since June of 2001, I was slow in coming around to thinking that gawking suburbanites on my doorstep was acceptable. On Sept. 16th when we first attempted to visit our apartment (or what remained of it, we had no idea at the time), tourists were flocking to the periphery of Ground Zero looking for that opportune vista that would allow them a quick, gut-wrenching snapshot to show incredulous gawkers back home. People took photos of themselves standing next to the dust and debris on deli signs near Wall Street just to say "I was at Ground Zero." My initial motivation was to snatch cameras from people's hands and chuck them against a building. Where was their sense of propriety? Had they no respect for the rescue effort that was going on here, nor the horrible tragedy that just happened? I myself felt hesitant about going to the area, even when simply trying to rescue a few changes of clothes and some personal belongings."

    I completely see this guys point, and respect his right to share it.

    In my opinion
    I see his point too but....You can't help but look at the side of the victims familys. That is just plain sick.

    Whatever he is trying to say about the media or gawkers is shadowed by the images he has put up. He is doing exactly what he is complaining about in a very horrible way.

    I don't beleive he lives near the WTC eather...but everyone has thier own opinion. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Boy there is definatly some wacky stuff on the internet lol. /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif
