Have the Terrorists Won?


Look at the bottom of that tower. 200 feet of virtually unbroken concrete and steel. Set back 65-120 feet from the street (65 feet is enough for 5 generous lanes of traffic). It's a bunker. A twenty story bunker. And this is "Freedom." This is supposed to be the embodiment of every ballsy New Yorker who said, even before the second tower fell, that we would rebuild, just as tall if not taller. This is supposed to be the symbol of America - 1776 feet tall, people - land of the free, home of the brave.

Land of the fortified, home of the cowering.

What sickens me most about this is that it is the symbol of America. George Bush's America.

Turn Lady Liberty around. Sink Ellis Island. Non-Yankee, go home. We're too scared.
