Let us be clear about the commercials. There is nothing graphic. No bodies. No blood. No names. This is not the Passion of 9/11, just iconographic images that we all remember, including the solemn bearing of a coffin and views of the devastation.
Is this off-limits? Beyond the bounds of decency?
The families have suffered. They deserve compassion and respect. But they do not own 9/11. This was not a house fire. This was not a train wreck. This was an act of war. And war is a national event.
