Photographer admits to 9/11 photo hoax

->> "Amateur photographer Milt Goldstein had three goals in mind when he agreed to exhibit his photos of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks at the Delray Beach Public Library this month...."

Trouble was, they weren't his photos.

->> I'm offended by the act of Goldstein but even more egregious is the construction of this sentence:

"But Goldstein confessed that not all the photos weren't taken by him after The Palm Beach Post confronted him Thursday with evidence of the actual photographers."

->> I'm more surprised at the fact that the library was never even suspicious about the photos in the first place...I mean, that guy's initial story about sneaking in Frank Abignale style and shooting that entire sequence in half an hour?

Yeesh.

->> WOW!! This is like the front page of the Enquirer or the Star.

What a sneaky devil. While photographers are struggling, loosing jobs and home and hardly even get to have shows of their own, even at the local library and for sure hardly speaking to the Rotary Club, this bastard has been ripping them off and doing it without morals or a conscience only saying that he suffers post this and post that after 911. Yeap right I have been suffering too.

This is another way to say that he is almost crazy but not totally for after all he is able to put a price tag of $350 for the stolen images.
Then he got the nerve to said, "He also claims to have given the presentation a half-dozen times....for a long period."

This is worth following it and to find out how many of those images he sold and give the money back to the rightful owners. This Goldstein got not gold and is desperately for that.

In this age of cheesy reality shows and folks writing books from places they never visited, about folks they never met or even copying page after page of 10 yrs old books I wonder how many other "wise guys" are doing the same to us.

Yes send him to the slammer down there in FL & tossed the key in a crocodile infested pond.

->> OK, take all the subversive, underhanded, illegal and immoral facets out of this story.

How many of you (I'd say "us" but I've seen my photos) have a nice, 20-shot documentary that would be worthy of a local showing? Does something like this give you the urge to get up and give it a shot? This guy had the cahones, why not us?

I'm just saying.
