|It was nice to see that Archbishop Dolan has not forgotten about Ground Zero as we can certainly use the prayers.
With the Port Authority yet again changing its plans and Silverstein asking for even more money on his end as if the $21 million he has received from the PA so far as well as the hundreds of millions he has collected in insurance funds is not enough, we can use all the prayers we can get.
Although they keep putting up a good front everyone I have spoken with has told me that there is no way they are going to meet any of their scheduled completion dates and that spending is once again spiraling out of control.
What's even worse is that the current handling of our national economic crisis seems to be using the WTC plan as a template.
Just as they did with Ground Zero our government is now throwing good money after bad while requiring little or no accountability.
As with Ground Zero spending does not seem to be an issue and they continue to spend like drunken sailors with no real end plan in site.
Just like with Ground Zero they are continuing to point fingers at those who were in charge before them, while taking no responsibility for their roles relating to our current economic situation.
Unfortunately our country cannot afford for this to drag on for 8 years as has the Ground Zero Debacle.
While NYC was able to survive for eight years with a hole in the ground our country cannot survive the hole that has been left by the total mismanagement and lack of supervision of our financial institutions.
While we agree that we need to rebuild our economy lets learn from our mistakes.
Let's use the WTC as an example of how things should not be done.
Because if we don't we will wind up with a country owned and operated by the Chinese.
A fate that appears destined for the World Trade Center.
