The New Delta Commercial – Maybe I’m Just too Sensitive?

Filed under: New York,Security,Terrorism,Uncategorized — alvb1227 @ 11:46 am

So, we are just days away from the ninth anniversary of the worst attack on American soil. Maybe it is because I grew up in North Jersey and could see the World Trade Center from my town and could smell the smoke that horrible day the towers fell, but I tend to get my back up when I see or hear things that I consider “insensitive” and “related” to that horrible day.

This week I saw a new Delta commercial. Now I will admit, I didn’t like the beginning of the commercial, but I will shrug that off as overly-sensitive. Then they sort of (again, in my opinion), soft of poke fun of “this crazy world of no liquids, take your shoes off…stuff.”

Now, let’s think about this for a minute. I don’t think taking your shoes off or not being allowed to carry on liquids is something to make fun of. These rules have directly come from lunatics trying to blow planes up and kill Americans.

Like I said, maybe I’m being overly-sensitive. Maybe it is because they launched this commercial the week of 9-11. I just don’t know. You watch it and let me know what you think.
