Too soon, too soon

COAST (Citizens Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes) posted a tweet on Sunday comparing the loss of firefighters' lives in NYC from 9/11 to the loss of firefighters' jobs in Cincinnati from the funding of the streetcar project.
Not only is the tweet incredibly insensitive and in poor taste, it's also misguided as the two come from very different budgets.

The author of the tweet has apologize and deleted the tweet, but I think the PR damage has been done.
