Cashing In On Amy Winehouse?

On his Facebook wall, OrangeTV writes of a regular at Mic-'n-Mac's who pulls a cart around town full of glossy photos of dead rockers, which he sells to the tourists. OTV was surprised that the wandering entrepreneur already had a photo of Amy Winehouse, who died July 23. OTV was impressed with the quality of the Winehouse photo but passed on purchasing it when he couldn't talk the seller down from $10. (AP file photo)

Question (from OTV): Is the salesman displaying keen business instincts in adding Winehouse to his wares already -- or guilty of a tacky cash-in? What do you think?
