This was sent to The Daily News. Unfortunately they printed only a redacted version (in today's edition) but at least the issue was mentioned.

To The Editor,

Julie Menin's article ("$150M in WTC found money" 4/14) about unused LMDC funds suggests utilizing them for redevelopment. There is a more urgent and moral imperative that should override any such notion. To wit, the relocation, re-examination, and proper burial of the 9/11 human remains that still--abhorrently--lie in the former Fresh Kills garbage dump. The opposition to this plan, led by the obdurate Mayor Bloomberg, has often cited the lack of money as a main reason for denying what the 9/11 families have been requesting for years. This "found" money would go a long way in vitiating the city's position which characterizes the families request as too expensive. More importantly, it will help provide what should never have been denied while simultaneously mitigating what is nothing short of a national disgrace.
