In honor of those who died on 9/11

I got an email about a trucker that painted his truck with all the names of the people who died on 9/11. Usually I don’t pass on these ultra-patriotic propaganda emails, but if this is really true, it’s kind of a cool tribute. So, here’s the pictures.

-----------------------------------It's a really nice paint job but, like you, Your Conscience tends to blow by those type of thing. Still, the apparent attention to detail is eye-catching...

But Your Conscience doubts everything you type after undergoing B. Obama Hussein's brainwashing video...

Nice paint job.
I hope, however, that the artist made the distinction between those who were heroes and those who were victims. I have a pet peeve about how so many people call those poor, unsuspecting people who were going about their daily business and got blown up "heroes." Being blown up does not make you a hero; it makes you a victim. The heroes were the rescue workers and some of those brave souls who kept that last flight from killing even more people by crash-landing it in a field instead of the Pentagon, or wherever else it may have been going.

YC - true, true. Since watching that video I am feeling quite facist-socialist, as redundant as that is since according to some people they are the same thing.
Writer - I agree. Although the deaths of the victims deserve to be honored as the deaths of the heroes, there is a distinction between the two. The firefighters, police and other rescuers as with the people on the flight that crashed in the field risked (and often gave) their lives to prevent other deaths. The victims, tragically, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
