There were victims. There were heroes. And there were idiots.
Remember the con artists who pretended that they lost a family member in the attacks to collect compensation? Or the jokers who emailed around photos of waving tourists standing on top of the World Trade Center as a plane appeared ready to crash into it?
We think some of the most odious responses to the World Trade Center attack came not from the amateur asses mentioned above but from prominent public figures. How bad were they? Well, what do you think?
