Blah, blah, blah


New name

On the spot where one of the World Trade Center towers stood, a new building is to be built. At first, the name Freedom Tower was coined for it. That name went around for quite a long time. Recently, the owners have decided to use a different name. It will be called One Trade Center, just like the building it is replacing.

Some people are mad about the name change. They say it does a disservice to those killed on 9-11. While I did not know anyone who perished that day, I do know that just the fact that we are putting up a new building on the same spot, going about our business as usual, and basically, gettin' er dun, shows that we have won.

I am OK with the name.

If people don't like the name, then let them spend a couple hundred million dollars and build their own stinkin' building.  Give me a break.

Kevin -  I understand the word "freedom" was politically incorrect, as the Chinese plan on leasing the majority of space...

I love your thought provoking posts. I think Susan hit the nail on the head I am afraid.
