Say 'I'm Sorry' With Big Bucks

Remember those [charming little battery-operated cartoon depictions of the “F you” guy] that popped up around NYC and in Boston last week and were temporarily suspected of being a terrorist attack? Well [Turner Broadcasting, the Greenwich Village marketing firm responsible for the Cartoon Network campaign, wrote a $2 million check](http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/495235p-417152c.html) yesterday in an attempt to end the controversy. But, according to the Daily News, “experts say lasting damage was already done.” Apparently, the guys who installed the devices weren’t exactly apologetic for getting Bostonians in a tizzy. Still, $2 million makes you think maybe New Yorkers should have worked themselves up a little more. It seems half the cash will reimburse agencies for their troubles—including shutting down highways and rail lines—and half will fund Homeland Security programs. Then again, it’s not worth it.(http://flickr.com/photos/mreraser/)
