We all let Memorial Day become about mattress specials and getting hammered, instead of honoring fallen Americans. And we should all be ashamed. So we are NOT about to do that to 9/11.
On Monday, Tumbledown Trails golf course in Verona, Wisconsin published ads for a SEPTEMBER 11TH SPECIAL . . . nine holes of golf for $9.11, or 18 holes with a golf cart for only 19.11.
But the ad got passed around on social media, and Tumbledown Trails got the BACKLASH you'd expect for EXPLOITING 9/11.
They say their goal was to remind people of the significance of the day.
So they apologized, canceled the special and the ads, and said they'd donate any profits today to a 9/11 memorial fund.
