Read Jonathan Last's account of how the Flight 93 Memorial is shaping up, and weep.

The photo above, incidentally, is of D.C.'s World War I Memorial, which is simple, small, lovely and inspiring, even though it probably didn't cost $44.7 million dollars and definitely doesn't include any windchimes. Go figure.
