This may be last year names of 9/11 victims are read at memorial service: mayor

This could be the last year when the names of every victim in the 9/11 terror attacks are read during the annual memorial service at Ground Zero.

On his radio show today, Mayor Bloomberg said the 9/11 memorial foundation intends to survey family members of the victims and first responders to get their feelings about making changes to the solemn ceremony.

"Some people have said we should go on forever," said the mayor. "Some people have said change is good. The subject's come up a couple of times. I think we've said the foundation board will talk about this. It's on Port Authority land...

"We'll talk to a lot of the family members and talk to a lot of the existing first responders and see what people think. You'll never have unanimity. There will always be dissension. The papers will make a big deal of it. You look at the stuff. It's a quiet news day, cycle, in New York right now so people are trying to make a big deal."

The idea of eliminating the name-reading stunned and angered some family members.

"That 9/11 victims in the future could be forgotten is outrageous. We must never forget," said Bill Doyle, a 9/11 family advocate who lost his son Joseph.

Doyle suspects the city will not do a thorough outreach to every 9/11 family, but instead "pick and choose who will side with the city and the mayor."
