Life Goes On

It's way too big to scan, but in today's New York Times, the usual suspects on the second and third pages all ran copy in the small space ads they take out daily to commemorate the victims of 9/11. Gucci, Saks, Bloomingdale's, Chanel, Tiffany - all ran memorial ads. And there, sticking out like a sore thumb, was high-end watch store Tourneau with an ad about well, a high-end watch.

Part of me was pissed that they didn't take the time to recognize the tragedy and part of me was glad that they didn't jump on the let's-all-mourn-9/11 bandwagon. Not sure what the statute of limitations is on those sorts of things. Only that, like a lot of tragedies you witness first hand, it seems at once to have happened just yesterday and a hundred years ago.
