purchasing grief

From Salon: the selling of 9/11. The article is good because it talks about something that the (US) media barely mentions, but seems to be a bit apologetic about the marketing of a tragedy, trying to explain that 'americans deal with tragedy by coopting it trough marketing.' It sounds like a bit of a stretch. I think that kind of 'co-opting' minimized reality and turns it into a product, with the consequence that nothing is more than something to be bought or sold, no matter how horrible or beautiful. The article mentions this, but I think it doesn't make it clear enough.
