With the year anniversary of 9-11 approaching, the topic of memorializing is once again a lively one. One man, living two blocks south of what used to be the World Trade Center, has turned to the web to voice his opinion on this topic. After seeing his neighborhood turn into a tourist trap with 'gawking suburbanites' taking snapshots, and 'crass opportunists' hawking quickly churned-out souvenirs, Todd Hulin responds with 'Twin Towers over Ground Zero,' America's number one theme park. Todd, of woodenteeth.com, is not new to parody, and this site reminds how memorializing can go so very wrong.
