They should be. I personally think the design could have been improved a little, but overall it does the city justice. If I was the designer though, they would have looked a little more reminiscent of the original towers.

That video represents what the majority of skyscraper fans said when we first saw the FT... "What the hell is this...?"

Now the core is not even complete... LOL. Finally the major press is starting to wake up and care at this debacle.

If someone who watched that video had lost someone close to them in 9/11 they wouldn't probably think it's so funny. Nor would any one whose life has been affected by the events since then. Thinking something that hurt others so greatly is funny definitely makes a person sick.

actually i don't think it will be targeted, terrorists know how heavily guarded it will be, and they know how hard it will be to destroy this building, they will settle for an easier target

Maybe we shouldn't talk about the building at all since someone out there might find the very idea of building it offensive.

If we hold ourselves hostages to the emotionally fragile we won't have much at all to talk about.

NORAD, the FBI and the CIA won't fail THAT badly a second time. Towers in the United States should be safe from such attacks in the future. Either that or all commanders of NORAD will experience the equivalent of being "sent to the Russian front" in Hogan's Heroes. I wouldn't worry about it if or when you plan to visit the tower when it's finished.

Jesus if the concrete core rises this slow throughout the construction, this won't be complete for 30 years.
