I know this is mostly old news, but I just have to comment on it.
The people that are upset with their compensation after the WTC disaster make ME want to throw up. Some bile-raising quotes for you:
"This is sick. I'm ready to throw up," said Beth Murphy, who lost her husband on 9/11. Yet she might get as much as $1.5 million under the plan - and could request a hearing for more. And she may qualify for more charity funds.
A TLC director, David Golomb, called the fund's $250,000 minimum for non-economic compensation "vastly inadequate," suggesting instead (with a straight face) a $2 million floor.
"This is a sick joke. This is what me and my two children will get for murder?" Murphy said.
Mark Morabito of Auburn, N.Y., whose wife, Laura Lee, was killed in the plane that crashed into the north tower, said life insurance shouldn't be a factor. "Why should people be penalized for planning for their future?" he said.
Just when you think people can’t get any more pathetic, they do. Never underestimate the boundlessness of human greed and selfishness.
