    Perhaps the person that selected this image was visiting planet Zentar for the last six years and honestly had no idea that something had happened in New York. Then again, maybe they are a lazy municipal employee that is as thick as a brick.

    This is almost as bad as when the Royal Canadian Legion ran their Million Dollar Lottery and the advertising agency used "inspiring martial music" in the radio and TV ads. Unfortunately, in that case the "inspiring martial music" they used was Die Horst Wessel Lied. Scheisse!
  2. I couldnt give you the name of anyone involved.
