We Cannot Let the Terrorists Keep Us from Shopping

Relatives of those killed in the 9/11 attacks are protesting arrangements at the official museum, which are about as near to being on schedule, on budget and sensitive towards the bereaved as one would expect from an enterprise begun under the George W Bush administration. The museum, a commercial venture which will charge twenty-four dollars per entry, has been built on a site which is vulnerable to flooding, and the authorities have chosen a superbly cack-handed inscription for the room where human remains are to be stored. Human remains which have not been identified are to be put in the basement. The families of the human remains find all this a bit undignified, even though they will be able to visit the museum for free and in private, and perhaps even get a discount on souvenir key-rings, as long as they make an appointment first.

    There's nothing like a 9-11 key-ring to brighten your day. I wonder if they sell those plastic coated photos which show a different image depending on which angle you're looking at it. Towers up - towers down.

    Classy. And for that extra-precious touch, they might try pressing their late relatives to brighten things up themselves.
