  •  hey, Adam, over here (0+ / 0-)

    going off thread here, but I am just now reading the two posts of the day, and the other one (re: the WW I memorial cross) seems to have died down in terms of being viewed- wondering what you think of that case in the context of the cross shape wreckage that is going to be displayed at the 9/11 memorial?

    If there is anything I have learned from Scooby Doo, it is that the only thing to fear is crooked real estate developers.

    •  Could you link to a drawing? (0+ / 0-)

      9/11 stuff is difficult for me to talk about because I'm involved in litigation regarding the Attacks.

      •  Seriously? (0+ / 0-)

        (not that you are involved with the litigation, that I have no trouble believing)

        you don't know what I am referring to?

        here's the wikipedia reference

        and here is a set of images

        •  It's been a while ... (0+ / 0-)

          ... so thank you for that.  Yeah, let me just say, um, that's the shape of a cross.

          •  okay... (0+ / 0-)

            I can think of two meanings behind your answer- one being that, given your representation, you aren't inclined to discuss it.  (in which case, feel free just to ignore me)

            The other being that, you aren't sure how I see what was essentially a random happenstance (I guess some would disagree with that, but let's move on) that building materials forming the shape of a cross were left behind following the disaster.  
            However, I think anyone would agree with me the reason why this particular piece of structure is considered to be iconic and is going to be featured at the national memorial for 9/11, is very much because of the shape it takes, and the religious symbolism represented by that shape.
            So- in your opinion, how does that relate to the WW I memorial case and the decision(s) relating to that cross.  Please be sure to check your answers carefully, and footnote any source material.  Please number your blue books carefully at the end.  You may begin.
