Can we thank Sandy?

“You can thank Sandy”

A friend got a marketing E-mail for some webinar saying that due to an overwhelming demand from people affected by Hurricane Sandy the discount registration period was being extended. The E-mail opened with large, bold type “You can thank Sandy.” Shortly thereafter, he received another E-mail from that company apologizing for the insensitive tone of the first E-mail. E-mail #2 also added that appropriate steps were taken to make sure this would never happen again.

I have to say that I didn’t find the Sandy reference insensitive and I certainly hope that appropriate steps doesn’t mean that someone lost a job. How do other people feel about this? Given that the current Nor’ easter is being referred to as Son of Sandy is anyone really offended?
