There is nothing preventing the boss from firing dead weight and bringing in another Ironworker from the hall. Something I have done many times.

I doubt it would be an issue. I'm sure every worker at the site is proud to be there and shows it in his/her work.

I would consider it a great honor to work in WTC1 and will apply for employment to every company that occupies the building and I'll relocate to NYC if/when hired. Most definitely.

That plane is flying over New Jersey, across the Hudson from Manhattan, probably departing from Newark.

I'm sure that's why that photographer chose that angle. To this day people in NYC are still startled by any plane flying over or near the WTC. The times we live in...

There are probably a lot more people who are afraid there'll be another Richard Reid when they're on a plane than there are people who are afraid that another plane will hit the WTC the day they happen to be visiting it. The chances of the latter are beyond infinitesimal.

Manhattan is a no fly zone, BENEATH a certain altitude...
Commercial planes flying to/from Newark, La Guardia or JFK are allowed

Think about it the secrets out. Before 9/11 planes that were hijacked were for ransom and the people would be exchanged for money at an airport or something along those lines. Now if anyone tries hijacking a plane there is going to be 200 people that get up and beat the living sh*t out of the person because they know its either that or die in a crash. There is no way something like this could ever happen again, the people didnt know on those planes what the terrorists intentions were but now they do and they wont just stay seated if something like this happens again. I dont care what weapon you can sneak on a plane try fighting over a hundred pissed off people and see how it works out. The real problem now is trying to think what their going to try next now that that option is gone and the best bet would be a car bomb which is going to be extremely hard to get near these buildings with the way security is going to be. The new wtc complex is probally going to be the safest place to be in new york city, they have many other options they could use at some other landmark in new york which doesnt have rediculous security measures. Thats why all of new york has to keep a lookout for suspicious things like the guy who stopped the times square bomb, who is a hero. So go visit the new wtc!

Excellent, now you can really start to see the curve the sides of the building make.
