    Victims' Families Are Furious About 9/11 Memorial Museum

    The 9/11 Memorial Museum, set to open to the public this Friday, is at the center of an intense debate.
    The New York City-based museum costs $24 to enter, and the gift shop offers pricey coffee mugs, T-shirts, key chains and stuffed animals. A separate part of the museum also houses some 8,000 unidentified human remains from the terrorist attacks.
    Those juxtapositions – tribute and commercialism, trinkets amid tragedy – have victims’ families fuming.

    by 3UteDad
    2014-05-13 18:41:38

    Interestingly enough, Travis Wilson is referred to as the "unquestioned success story (so far) from this class".

    Travis Wilson
    Ranking: No. 39
    School: Utah
    Status: Starter
    Comment: The unquestioned success story (so far) from this class, Wilson is the only starter among the group. He started seven games as a true freshman and the Utes' first nines games in 2013 before a scary head injury cost him the rest of the season. The injury was serious enough that his career was in jeopardy, but it was announced in February that he would return. Wilson has thrown for 3,138 yards and 23 touchdowns.
