    A golf course in Verona, Wisc. shows off their classiness.

    <img src="https://sphotos-a-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/p526x296/1235410_10100444104802617_973736608_n.jpg">

    After this ran and the outrage that ensued, the course pulled the coupon, closed for the day and closed their facebook page.
    I guess this was the 3rd year they have done it...but it going viral canceled it.

    The coupon can't be combined with other offers. ... so unfortunately there is no combining it with their popular "$5 off a round for anyone with a Hitler mustache" promotion.

    For as many touching stories I've seen today about 9/11, I've seen just as many links to blog entries that tear down others for how they handle this day, because, you know, that's cool. What happened to United We Stand?

    I'm sorry, but the way people handle this day on Facebook is getting rather cliche.

    That's not just a terrible special, it's a terrible deal. Nine holes costs $9.11, so shouldn't 18 holes be $18.22?

    This damn country can find a way to tie the Apocalypse into a marketing campaign.

    The Starkville thing has positively horrified people there. Rightly so.
