Student Who Made a Killing Selling Osama Death T-Shirts Has Sudden Change of Heart

As news broke Sunday night about the killing of Osama bin Laden, 23-year-old NYU business school student Maurice Harary saw it as a business opportunity. Within three hours, his Web site -- selling t-shirts celebrating the death of bin Laden at $12 a pop -- went live and two days later, he already made $100,000! Today, however, he says he's had a change of heart. “I will now be refunding all orders on Osama dead tees,” he says. “Celebrating over the death of someone, whoever it is, is evil in my eyes. I feel it’s not a positive way to be making money. I don’t want my success to come at the expense of anyone else." As noble as that sounds, the cynics in us believe something else happened here.
