"To maintain their privacy, the youths of America’s Camp were not allowed to be interviewed for this story. "

I think this is local journalism at it's WORST! Here's a story essentially extolling the virtues of all the local businesses who are so giving and caring to the "9/11 victims' children." In essence saying, "we're so good, we gave a gift bag, or a free haircut, to these poor waifs." These kids are not curiosities to be gawked at...or worse, profited from. SHAME that you'd even think of trying to interview them! What're you going to ask? Never mind...the possible answers to that are too horrible to contemplate. Leave the poor kids alone and let them live their lives. I'm sure that's what they'd want as opposed to being constantly pointed out and recognized for being a victim of horror. And if a business wants to donate something, let them do it for the act...not for the recognition the act brings.
