In light of the terrible plane crash that left Travis Barker and DJ AM badly burnt and four others dead, Barker’s Famous Stars and Straps clothing line is producing exclusive T-shirts in memory of the former Blink 182 drummer’s personal assistant Chris Baker and security guard Charles Still. The shirts were designed by pro skater and Famous team manager Felix Arguelles and Famous art director and artist Maxx “maxx242″ Gramajo. All the proceeds from sales of the shirts will benefit the memorial funds set up for Chris Baker and Charles “Che” Still. A source tells PEOPLE, “Everyone that is a part of the Famous family are really close, so Chris and Che were brothers to everyone. The shirts were made to honor them and support their families.” The memorial T-shirts will be available exclusively at Famoussas.com and at The Fast Life store in L.A.

Meh. I think all of the money made off the shirts should go to the company who lost the airplane. Those things aren’t cheap you know…

Dear Stephanie,

Thanks for being a moron. It is people like you who make internet message boards the entertaining treasure trove of idiocy that they are.

You said, “The government gave money to all of the families who died in 911 not just a few of them so before you make statements do your research.”

That’s delightful.

First, please use commas; it helps to make things easier to read.

Second, you can’t die IN 911; you can die ON 911, or “in the events of 911.”

Third, what does your statement have to do with someone creating a t-shirt in memory of his or her friend who died in the WTC, and to help generate money to support his or her family now that the person is gone? What a specific person wants to do to honor someone who died in a tragedy has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not everyone gets money from the government. Your logic, or lack thereof, is astounding. My point was, a person wanting to create a t-shirt or poster or website or whatever to support their dead friend DOES NOT HAVE TO DO THE SAME FOR THE OTHER 3000 VICTIMS.

Travis is doing the same thing by creating a t-shirt that celebrates his friends and provides financial support to their loved ones who are left behind. It is not his responsibility to honor the pilot and copilot, and we have NO IDEA if he is offering them any support behind the scenes. If the airline is found to be at fault, I am sure the copilot and pilot’s family will receive money. If it was caused by pilot error, they will rightfully not receive anything. If the government wants to dole out money left and right, as you so ingeniously pointed out, that’s great too, but has nothing to do with what Travis has done to support his friends.

In your May issue on the 7 hair experts must-haves page (77) you cited Klorane Dry Shampoo coul be purchased thru drugstore.com. Sorry, it carries a wide variety of Klorane products, but no dry shampoo. Any suggestions? Georgia Owens

Travis, and DJ AM you guys are blessed and it is great that you are extending your blessing onto your friends/team members. Think nothing of the ramblings of some bloggers who have not donated a dime to anything or anyone, but point fingers. God Bless you and your family.

Travis wants us 2 give $. He is rich.
How much is he giving?
Anything less that $100 ISNT ok.
