An Odd Parallel

Somehow I find it easy to equate this old joke:

A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received in the mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he received a letter from the police that contained another picture, this time of handcuffs. He immediately mailed in his $40.

With this cartoon:

If videos of airliners plunging into the twin towers and their ultimate collapse along with the ubiquitous car bombings don't inspire us to 'mail in the full $40', I'm not quite sure what will.
