El Pais

El Pais runs an ad showing two images of the Manhattan skyline. One includes the Twin Towers. The other does not. The ad copy reads: "You can do a lot in one single day; just imagine what can happen in three months"

It isn't that a major Spanish newspaper thinks this despicable sentiment is... what... clever? It isn't even that a major Spanish newspaper thinks this ad will sell newspapers. It is that they may be right to think it will sell newspapers (via lgf).

As I said to my wife this morning after seeing the amoral ad in El Pais:

"Honey, cancel our trip to Spain this winter."
