I agree, John. On NPR this morning, I heard that the original plans submitted this summer, were short buildings and plazas--and New Yorkers protested that they thought the plans were "too boring". All twelve of the new plans call for tall buildings.
<sigh> Again, the arrogance of the American--sometimes I want to ask "Who the heck do we think we are??". . .I can imagine Osama and his cultist faction, drooling and anxiously waiting in anticipation at the completion of such a prominent target. One of the designers even said that immediately he knew he'd have a hard time getting occupants for the higher floors, but he said that 10 or 12 years from now, it won't be a problem. I predict it will be sooner. As Americans, we become complacent way to easily and quickly. It's irritating. done venting your sis in Mishawka val ----------John W. Redelfs gave us pause to think with: I think it is hubris to imagine we should build towers still taller than the WTC. Sure they can build them, but the experience with the WTC proves that someone else can knock them down. What is the point? Why make buildings a tempting target unnecessarily? I should think that the builders of the WTC would have learned their lesson. Super tall building are not a good idea. John W.

This four-year pattern, however, must not be followed by Church members in their personal and family study. We need to read daily from the pages of the book that will get a man "nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book."
