I couldn?t give a rats...

This is a video still of Eric Fischl?s "Tumbling Woman," a statue in Rockefeller Center that was meant to commemorate those who jumped or fell to their deaths from the World Trade Center, was abruptly draped in cloth and surrounded by a curtain wall on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2002, in New York. The work, depicts a naked woman with her arms and legs flailing above her head will be removed from the site in response to a number of complaints.

I can understand where they want to remember the good things that happened and not the grim horrors that they faced. :frown:

Its an artistic view of what happened that day. It doesnt offend me, but it was released a little too soon. People are still very hurt by what happened to their loved ones. They just might not want to be reminded of it at the time. I think its good, not purpously offensive, artistic way of remembering what happened that day. Give the people the tall, brave, and proud fireman for the time being. Eventuially this sculpture will make its way somewhere as a memorial.

Ever heard the expression don't beat a dead horse? Well this 9/11 stuff has been beaten, chopped into little pieces, dragged through the mud, cleaned and packaged, and sold for $6.99/
Or I'm just crazy.
