Fred Meyer has pulled all the punches in merchandising the 9/11 tradgedy. As if the "PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN" T-shirts weren't bad enough -- whose quality rivals that of high school football T-shirts -- there's now full racks of US and Oregon state flags, red white and blue decorative house garland, the gaudiest r/w/b baskets, racks of magazines with full-color glossy photos, red/white/blue decorations around the store and employees wearing the said "PROUD" shirts, and even -- get ready for this -- red white and blue single layer cakes from the bakery department, to treat your family while showing your patriotism at the same time!

What's next, Bin Laden GI Joe action figures?
