Bad choice as rest of us remember

I am appalled to see that on the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the US and a date that, no matter what our nationalities might be, will forever live in our collective memories, ATV World will devote three hours of its airtime to 'live' horse racing from Happy Valley and that the Hong Kong Jockey Club would even consider staging a race meeting on this date.

Personally, I feel this does nothing for the image of ATV and the Jockey Club and simply reeks of ignorance and greed.

Thanks, however, to TVB Pearl for remembering this date with some superb and thought-provoking programming that traces the events that led to September 11 and how this one day changed the world forever.
