Saturday Must-Read: Frustration at Ground Zero

I've blogged before on how inexcusable it is that we're nearly four years out from 9/11 and still nowhere near breaking ground on the proposed Freedom Tower, and submitted my own proposal for a solution.

Why doesn't Frank Rich, Maureen Dowd, or Paul Krugman ever harp on this? Is the Times forgetful of its own back yard? This would make an excellent journalistic crusade, and relieve the rest of us from the constant rewriting of a single idea: the condemnation of religious conservatives. It's just a thought...
