Heres a special item

Here’s a special item for TPM regulars. I’d say it was a treat. But that word wouldn’t be appropriate. And I’m not certain quite what to call it. Maybe just something weird and worth seeing.

In any case, if you’re enough of a pack-rat to have held on to the September 10th, 2001 issue of The New Yorker (that is, the second-to-last issue before the attacks) you can thumb back through those pages and find something that is equal parts bizarre, chilling, and weird. And, I think I can guarantee you, an ad-campaign that came to a screeching halt on September 11th.

So if you’ve still got a copy of that issue (the one with a black and white and yellow drawing of an over-sized child walking his parents) open it up and look at the Lufthansa ad opposite the table of contents.
