Does that mean you think we should shut down all the "memorials" in the country? Like the one for the USS Arizona, Washington DC, Gettysburg as well as all the historical forts in the US? And what about Alcatraz? Is that still an available tour or has it officially gone to the birds?

Don't kid yourself. Taken directly from their website...
"The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a private not-for-profit (501c3), responsible for oversight of the design, raising the necessary funds, programming and operating the Memorial & Museum being built at the World Trade Center site."

I didn't see anything regarding them helping the families of the victims other than building a memorial / museum on the site.

Unless they give all procedes in excess of what it take to run their non-profit org & build this monstrosity, they are no better than the guy on the street. As a matter of fact, I have more respect for the guy on the street doing what it takes to make an honest buck to feed himself or his family. Unless he stole the pictures or ilegally obtained them, he should be able to sell them. Permits are just big brother's way of making money off other people making money.

I look at it like this. What is more important; honoring a bunch of dead people or feeding your family? When you're hungry, homeless or unemployed, there aren't a ton of people knocking on your door/box to feed you, give you a place to stay or offer you work.

I've been on both sides of the homeless/jobless and working spectrums. I have lived both points of view. So it all boils down to we shouldn't criticize another until we've walked in their tattered, stained, smelly shoes.
