Rebuilding, Ctd

As a New Yorker, and a resident of the Financial District (the Tower will make for an exciting "View From [My] Window"), it's about damn time. The one thing Glenn Beck has ever been right about is that reconstruction should've started and finished by now. But I write to correct the name you gave the Tower. Although it's been referred to as the "Freedom Tower," official designs reflect that the final Tower will be "1 World Trade Center," mirroring former nomenclature. This matters: choosing continuity over cliche sends a strong message that we as a people will not be governed or altered by fear. Or so we hope.
