Is This 9/11 Casino Promotion A Nice Tribute, Or Just Tacky?

Reader Bearcat44 spotted this ad in the Spokane, Wash. Spokesman-Review. It’s from an Idaho casino running a promotion tomorrow, September 11th. To honor the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, they’re offering special rates to law enforcement, medical personnel, and other first responders in order to honor “heroes who protect and serve our community.”

Special deals for eligible “heroes” include hotel rooms for only $91.11, food vouchers for $9.11, and $10 in play credits. What? Not $9.11 in credits?
