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

----------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.

At present, the Book of Mormon is studied in our Sunday
School and seminary classes every fourth year. 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." (Ezra Taft Benson, October 1988)
