So Called Freedom Center Quashed

Kudos to New York's Govenor Pataki, for finally seeing the light. Today he finally put the kabosh on the International Freedom Center at ground zero. Saying that there was "too much opposition, too much controversy!" Pataki used his authority as executive of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation to put this bad idea to bed.

"We must move forward with our first priority, the creation of an inspiring memorial to pay tribute to our lost loved ones and tell their stories to the world," Pataki said in a statement.

This was overdue. The so called Freedom Center was opposed by families of victims, the Patrolman's Benevolence Association, the Unifromed Firefighters Association, and thousands of decent people in New York and throughout the nation. But Overdue or not it is a welcome step.
