Eeewww! I don’t know what took me so long to talk about this, but better late than never I guess.
I keep seeing this ad on TV. Thankfully, the sound quality is better on TV. But the concept is the same. Basically, these sick freaks have made a coin to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the September 11 tragedy. What makes them sick freaks is each coin has silver recovered from ground 0. You even get a certificate with your coin stating that the silver is really from vaults beneath the crash zone.
Ug! I have no problem with commemorative symbols. That’s great, if you’re into that sort of thing. But why can’t we just have a symbol without having a piece of the action, literally? What kind of morbid collector would want a coin that has World Trade Centre death guts all over it? For Christ’s sake, leave them a lone already! Must we mine a tragedy for profits? Are people next going to want genuine ashes to pour over their gardens to use as fertilizer with special gifts from the dead for their plants? We’re getting sicker and sicker.
But then again, people like to wear and decorate their houses with crosses, so why should this surprise me?
