WTC Replacements

This site has information and models for the proposed replacements for the World Trade Center. These are just concept plans; none of them are final. There is no word on when the building would start or be completed. Thanks Shacknews.

The Master comments: While I do agree that the footprints of the towers should be left untouched as hallowed ground, I still think we ought to put those buildings up bigger and better than before. Maybe it's just me, but if we wimp out, didn't the terrorists win? Course, I doubt you'd ever get an insurance company to TOUCH that disaster policy.

A.T. Hun comments: The greater issue is one of economics. There isn't the need, desire, or money available to rebuild behemoths like that. Plus, the real way to beat the terrorists is to run every last one of them outta Dodge.

The Master comments: Yeah, but that might require a level of ruthless brutality that this country isn't capable of (and that is probably a good thing).
