Bad taste? Just a lil' bit.

No accounting for taste in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Over the holiday weekend, the town had its own fireworks display, complete with loudspeakers blaring "God Bless America". Nothing unsual about that....

Except that the version of "God Bless" that they used included excerpts of phone calls made from the twin towers during 9/11.

About 70,000 people had gathered to celebrate the Fourth of July when the song "God Bless the U.S.A." was played. The version had voices of people recorded during the terror attacks.
One voice on the mix said, "Oh my God, another plane has just hit." Another said, "Some of the casualties are in the collapsed building."
People at the celebrations said the mood of the night changed when the song was played.

Yeah. I should think so. Vince Kendrick, the town's director of parks and recreation, went on to say "If it was Memorial Day, no one would have minded".

Yes, its true. As Americans, we wish t spend Holidays listening to the last terrified words of people who in moments will be dead, at the hands of terrorists. Holy shit people. What the hell is wrong with Florida!?
