    They can also serve the purpose of momentos....taking away a small token to always have close and remember the event.

    That has been a very meaningful thing for humans for millenia. It can reinforce learning and memory.

    Yes the museum should be allowed to sell gifts as long as it goes towards maintaining the museum and the gifts are respectful.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As usual, no poll option fits my feelings. The 9/11 museum should sell gifts if it wants. I have no problem with the selling gifts, I have no problem if they decide not to. Maybe the world would be a better place if we stopped being outraged at every little ****ing thing.

    Maybe they could sell office supplies. A tastefully done box cutter would help commemorate the events of the day.

    Re: Should the 9/11 Museum Sell Gifts?

    As others have said, I have no problem with a gift shop at all there, especially if the gifts aren't disrespectful/distasteful. I think my idea of what might be disrespectful/distasteful may be a little more relaxed than some other people's though but I think it would be highly inappropriate and likely not very profitable for them to sell anything that could reasonably be viewed as distasteful anyway.

    (And I don't see anything wrong with selling that dog besides the price being a bit high for such a small stuffed animal.)

    One questionable item, retails for $19.95
    Description
    The Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Program was developed by FEMA in 1989, and was designed to provide assistance to local agencies in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Using their incredible sense of smell, the canines help search teams to locate victims. In response to the events of September 11, 2001, twenty US&R task forces and their canine teams worked at the World Trade Center site, and five teams responded to the Pentagon. Our Search & Rescue soft plush dogs are available in 3 breeds: Yellow Labrador, Black Labrador & German Shepherd, sized 9"X4"X11", with removable vest.



    What's questionable about that?

    They should sell 8 x 11 photos of the CIA head giving money and weapons to Osama Bin Ladin. If you don't acknowledge your past, your future doesn't learn.

    Sure.

    Dave, I usually enjoy your posts. But that is simplifying the historical situation.

    I voted yes. Hell, why not. They sell rubber crown of thorns in Old Town Jerusalem, why not a fake Saudi passport with your own mug photographed inside to take home and show everyone back in Tennessee. The possibilities are endless.

    It's approaching twenty years now. Let's not turn this into another Pearl Harbor that everyone has to have a tall tale about to bore the dickens out of their grandchildren. The shrine worship, the mesmerization with the death cult, and hero fabrication and fascination that has so engrossed many segments of our country is becoming as horrible as the event itself.
