"Freedom Tower To Be Icon And Giant Middle Finger"



Freedom Tower To Be Icon And Giant Middle Finger

"Freedom Tower is a bold and simple icon that acts as a marker in the sky for the memorial below,'' Childs, said. "While the memorial, carved out of the earth, speaks of the past and of remembrance, Freedom Tower speaks of optimism and the future as it rises into the sky.''

And it's fine with this reporter if the tower serves as giant middle finger to the architects of death who sought its destruction. The skyline will be rebuilt, and built better, a symbol of the resolve of our compatriots, a promise that we will not be defeated. We're still mad about it. We won't forget.

The new building is a pitiful concession by its supporters, and the Bush Administration, that those who take something important from us may have the satisfaction of knowing that we'll replace that something with less.

They might as well erect a giant flagpole and call it "the tallest structure in the world."

Bush Administration??? Since when does the President commission or erect skyscrapers? Is the President also responsible for that no good bird that pooped on your windshield? Making the President the scapegoat for everything under the sun is completely asinine.

I join with the author, and willingly raise my own middle finger!

I rather liked a different proposal that we reconstruct the towers so that they reached their original heights and name them Freedom and Unity.

That would abbreviate of course to "F. U."
