There’s Always A Market For Post-Modernistic Depravity

US firm makes killer calendar for serialphiles'.

I agree with this comment:

"This is a horrible, disturbing calendar," said Christine Ward, executive director of the California-based Doris Tate Crime Victims Bureau. The group was founded by the late mother of Sharon Tate, who was murdered by Charles Manson. Manson is featured on the calendar's January page."The last thing you want is somebody making a profit off the person who murdered your loved one," she said.

Sales of such products, she says, are painful to families of murder victims. "Something like this calendar — created by someone whose crimes are just as heinous as the people he has painted — is a reminder to families that what happened to their loved one doesn't matter. What does matter is that we live in a culture where these killers have been celebritized."

Those obsessed with sex and death will always find a market:

According to auction house Wachniak, the murderabilia market includes everything from sketches and paintings by Charles Manson and [John Wayne] Gacy to the autographed 7th-grade yearbook of serial killer Ted Bundy.It even includes dirt from the crawlspace in Gacy's home, where the remains of many of his victims were found.
