Sick Sad World of the Moment
January 16, 2002
When the capitalistic message we try to bring the world goes a little bit awry...it's the handheld video game "Laden Vs. USA", with real pictures from September 11.
On the one hand, it's appalling to make a terrorist incident where thousands died into a game. On the other hand, you have to admire the chutzpah. And really, is that much worse than the flash games like this or the "Come Mr. Taliban, Hand Over Bin Laden / Daylight Come and We Drop Da Bomb" flash video?
