Rebuild Twin Towers Boldly--Not Just One
I recognize that dedicated effort from many talented and well-intentioned people has gone into designing the Freedom Tower, both as a business enterprise and a memorial symbol. But the concept has two deep flaws that will handicap its chances of succeeding as a symbol. It may overcome these handicaps, but why add them unnecessarily to such an already difficult mission?

Most obviously, the Freedom Tower is a single tower.

An open letter to the man in charge of rebuilding the 9/11 site.

I say rebuild the damn towers as they were with a small memorial in between them. That's what the Israelis do when they suffer suicide attacks.
