Random Comment on "Tributes"

Last night I was at the gym, and when I walked into the treadmill room (the one with the TV's), I saw still pictures of miserable crying people, with a background of some homey, folksy song. I said, "What the hell is this?".

The woman on the treadmill (it was half an hour before closing, and it's a small gym) said, "It's a tribute to the miners that died."

"A tribute? Their idea of a tribute is to show footage of the miserable, sad people left behind crying really hard? Is it me, or is that just exploitation? It's mean!"

So... is it me?
