A National Disgrace II

The Washington Post writes: "Where the Towers Stood, Delays and Disagreements Mount". In summary the Post writes: "Eight years later, the site known as Ground Zero remains mostly a giant hole in the ground. A projected completion date has been pushed back years, if not decades. The project has been beset by repeated delays, changing designs, billions of dollars in cost overruns, and feuding among the various parties involved in the complex undertaking."

In commenting on the article gce1356 wrote: "America is no longer the land of getting things done, instead it's become the land of blustery talk, endless arguments, finger pointing and blame, bankers, insurance executives and lawyers."

In commenting on the article ChrisFord1 observes: "5 years - whole cities were rebuilt after WWII. ... 1 year - the time it took to build the Empire State Building ... Gaze on the Pit. Now proof America has lost it's ability to get things done"

A country that dwells on the past, is country that is in decline. Build a simple memorial park and get on with resolving our other national issues.
