A Great Hack.

Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology looked to a
long-standing tradition to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the
Sept. 11 terrorists attacks Monday.
They put a fire truck on top of the school's 150-foot high Great Dome,
a central feature on the campus that has been a stage for student and
alumni pranks -- known as "hacks" -- since at least the 1920s.
A student Web site referenced by the MIT Museum describes Monday's
tribute as a 25-foot-long fire truck with the phrase "memininum," Latin
for "we remember," painted on the truck's side.
