Good point

...About the falling towers losing their shock value if given too much exposure. Very true.

Have just seen the footage Normandie described, and it *is* shocking to see Fr. Judge alive in the lobby and then, only a little later, his body lying against the rubble. Very shocking. But for them to give a filmed record of what it was like on that day and yet NOT include any footage of the dead would be wrong, IMHO. This didn't cross any boundaries of taste for me, it was immensely sad but not gratuitous.
