Shaking the Can for Ground Zero

Hello, dear chaps, terribly sorry for not posting yesterday, terribly sorry. I was on an important secret mission, which I naturally cannot disclose at the risk of compromising national security. You understand.

Anyway, the New York Times reports today that donations for the Ground Zero memorial have slowed. You people just make me sick. The city is trying to honor the 3,000 who lost their lives on 9/11 with years of bickering, controversy, and false starts, and you can't even give them a few bucks to help them prolong the agony? It's pathetic, that's what it is. Just because many of those who lost loved ones are afraid to even enter the memorial (as currently planned) because it's terrifyingly far underground, that doesn't mean you shouldn't help it get built. Sure, the Drawing Center and the International Freedom Center have been forced off the site, leaving it culturally hollow, but does that mean you shouldn't have your name on a brick? Come on, people, it's like you don't want to be involved in the most torpid public project since, like, ever.
