That newsday cover is pretty cool. Our government is too stupid to replace the twins.

Before they were destroyed they were pretty much reviled for their design. Paul Goldberger, an architecture critic, put it best when he said they were so banal they weren't worthy of a bank headquarters in Omaha (Nebraska USA).
That was pre-9/11. Reputations can be destroyed in one day.....but they can also be made.

I wonder what would have happened if the towers hadn't collapsed? Do you think the holes would have been repaired. Or do you think the buidings would have had to have been demolished?

How is the main picture not dedicated to 9/11? To me that's a slap in the face.

R.I.P. Vicitms of September 11, 2001

VICTIMS' RELATIVES GATHER AT 9/11 CRASH SITES

Post Wire Services



September 11, 2007 -- Relatives of World Trade Center victims bowed their heads in silence at a small park Tuesday to mark the moment exactly six years earlier when the first hijacked plane struck the towers. The dreary, gray skies created a grim backdrop, and a sharp contrast to the clear blue of that morning in 2001.

Mayor Bloomberg, who has presided over each of the anniversary events, described Sept. 11, 2001, as "the day that tore across our history and our hearts. We come together again as New Yorkers and as Americans to share a loss that can't be measured"

Construction equipment now fills the vast city block where the World Trade Center once stood. the work is under way for four new towers forced the ceremony to be moved away from the twin towers' footprints for the first time.

It was also the first first time the commemoration has been held on a Tuesday -- the day the attacks occurred in 2001 -- and the first time it has rained.


The ceremony began at 8:40 a.m. with the sounds of drums and bagpipes, as an American flag saved from the site was carried onstage.

"The Star Spangled Banner" was performed by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus before the first of four moments of silence was observed at 8:46 a.m. -- the moment the first plane struck the north tower.

As in past years, New York will hold four moments of silence to mark the times that two hijacked jetliners hit, and for the two times that each tower collapsed. For the first time since 2001, Sept. 11 is on a Tuesday, the day of the attacks.

Other Sept. 11 commemorations were held around the United States, including a moment of silence by President George W. Bush at the White House.

A memorial honoring the 40 passengers and crew who died when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a Pennsylvania field was also planned.

At the main U.S. base at Afghanistan, a memorial ceremony was held.

What has the government got to do with this???Last I heard the "Lower Manhattan Development Corporation" was responsible...I also heard (correct me if I'm wrong) that "Silverstein Properties" owned the lease on the land , making them the temporary landowners.

Imagine if they never fell and had to be taken down! That's crazy to think about.

If only our government would've knocked them down(My opinion)...
Nothing has worked out in the US economy after the destruction of the WTC...

If they had had traditional concrete cores, would they have collapsed? I think no. I believe the engineering studies that absolved the design of blame were a cover up.
