After focusing on September 11 and the primaries, we're a little late to this, but it's still worth sharing: MIT students paid tribute to September 11 by putting a fake fire truck on school's the 150 foot dome. Check out this WNBC slideshow, which says, "A student Web site said the fire engine was placed in memory of the attacks. The phrase 'meminimus,' Latin for 'we remember,' was painted on the truck's side. Inflatable dalmatians rode on the ladder truck," and usually MIT students leave detailed instructions on how to remove the objects. Those MIT kids are so thoughtful, though we can't tell what the reaction of September 11 victims' families would think (trite or tribute?).

Here's the official gallery of photographs from MIT's Hack Gallery.
