12/19/2003: "New World [Order] Trade Center [sic] design revealed."
The new World Trade Center (WTC2) has revealed in a press conference.
Having watched the press conference without sound (on an office plasma screen), the design appears to be for an extremely tall metal and glass building with a spike on its left-hand side, reminding me of the statue of liberty holding her torch aloft.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the building is its title - it's been nicknamed 'Freedom Tower'.
Freedom Tower? Who in hell thought that up? Far from being something redolent of glory and rememberance, it sounds like a t-shirt slogan perfect for overweight people who wear lycra leggings and golf visors in museums.
Can you imagine the witless souvenirs it'll inspire? "I went to Freedom Tower and all I got was AN UNDYING PLEDGE TO MY GOD AND MY COUNTRY!". Good grief. What will the construction plan be called? Operation Enduring Scaffolding?

Some people say a man is made outa mud
A poor man's made outa muscle 'n blood...
Muscle an' blood an' skin an' bone
A mind that's weak and a back that's strong
cho: You load sixteen tons an' whaddya get?
Another day older an' deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company sto'
If ya hear me a-comin' ya better step aside
A lotta men din't an' a lotta men died
With one fist of iron an' the other of steel
If the right one don' getcha then the left one will.
I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
Picked up my shovel and I went to the mine
Loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the strawboss said, "Well, Bless my soul!"
I was born one morning in the drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebreak by an' ol' mama hound
Ain't no high-tone woman gonna push me around.
