Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

What would have been more tasteless than charging a highly-symbolic $9.11 per head for a Rudy Giuliani presidential campaign fundraising event?

I guess removing that decimal point, thus making the price of admission $911. After all, unlike the motive behind the under-$10 plan:

According to the invitation, “$9.11 for Rudy” is an “independent, non-denominational grass-roots campaign to raise $10,000 in small increments to show how many individual, everyday Americans support ‘America’s Mayor.”‘

Campaign fundraisers, especially for White House runs, tend to carry big-ticket pricetags. I wouldn’t doubt that some Republican counterpart to Norman Hsu had been planning just such a shy-of-a-grand soiree, and now feels like s/he just dodged a bullet.
