i appreciate that these businesses are a big part of america and maybe, at some base level, before the marketing guys get a hold of it, an executive says “maybe we should say something today.” but i don’t feel like it’s disrespectful if chuck e. cheese or wickes furniture doesn’t mention 9/11. i think it’s okay. i am not upset with them for not incorporating a national tragedy into their brand messaging.
