Earthquake preparedness is critical.

No it's not, given the fact that the East coast earthquakes are taking place occasionally.

Maximum strength against every possible disaster is always critical.

Yes and no. They are cladding that side fast. But the cladding doesn't really go all the way around the building yet.

I was down on Canal St. and Varick St. yesterday, and I saw 4 WTC peeking out from downtown for the first time, at least the little bit of blue curtain and the cranes. She's growin' up!

I just noticed something interesting. 1WTC is now about 980 feet tall. The final height for 4WTC is 977 feet. So 1WTC is now slightly taller than 4WTC will ever be.

I remember about a year ago there was a video of an ironworker on 4WTC pointing over to 1WTC and saying how the ironworkers on 1WTC may be looking down on them at that time but he expected them to catch up and said one day they'll be looking down on the 1WTC workers. Well, he sure lost on that one! It's now impossible.
