The Jumpers

Kathy Kinsley linked to this, about the photos of the people who jumped out of the WTC two years ago.

What would it take to make you jump out of a building from 100+ stories up? Does showing pictures or videos of these somehow disrespect the dead and/or their kin?

IMO no, it doesn't. And if it's horrible, well, maybe that's what it will take to get people to remember just what was done two years ago.

OTOH I know something that does show disrespect for the dead and their families. That's when some jackass says "move on", or better yet, "why do they hate us?" Do you suppose any of the jumpers asked themselves that?
