(An inquiry from David W. Dunlap, a reporter for The New York Times)

Dear 9/11 Family Members:

Yesterday, near Herald Square, I spotted an illuminated, stark white billboard that showed nothing more than the silhouette of a man in a business suit at the very top of the billboard, falling from the sky.

At the bottom of the billboard, but difficult to see from the street, was the legend March 25.

I was startled at first, until I realized that this must be an ad for Mad Mens new season. But I found the imagery particularly unsettling, since in this context, with office buildings behind it it evoked those indelible images from 9/11.

I wondered about the sensitivity and appropriateness of this campaign. Maybe everyone who sees it will understand that its only a reference to a popular TV show. I do not want to start a controversy where none exists. But I am wondering whether any members of this List-Serv have been struck by this campaign. If so, I would be interested in your comments positive or negative.

A JPEG photo can be viewed at: *** Media Request *** .at the bottom of the message.

Thank you.
