How do I make plots involving Dirac Delta functions? The following code just plots zeroes:

Plot[DiracDelta[t-1],{t,0,2},
PlotStyle -> {Thickness[0.01]}]

I think the problem is that the delta function is infinitely narrow and infinitely tall, so Mathematica doesn't plot a point. However, I need to visually represent weighted delta functions. If there isn't a graphics package to do this, does anybody have any hints on creating one?
