Not sure how long this will stay in GAL but this is not totally political in nature so much as it is human and American.
Am I the only person who is fucking annoyed by the choice to replace the holes where the twin towers were with…holes? And a single, atrociously ugly building in replacement of the Trade Center? I don’t typically use such language here, but fuck this. Seriously? This is how we memorialize three thousand of our murdered countrymen? By two gigantic gaping reminders of just what happened as those buildings collapsed upon themselves in a hellish inferno of melted steel and rubble and vaporized blood and powdered bone and teeth and terror and death?
They should have built those Twin Towers up just as they were before, only one floor higher, as a big FUCK YOU to the murderous animals who thought they could put a dent in our spirit.
How hard would that have been? All this debate and discussion, for years on end, and this is what they finally came up with? This?
I am sickened and incalculably disappointed.
