Greed is Good


Rudolph Giuliani has declared that anything other than a big memorial on the WTC site would tell future generations that all that matters is "greed."

"A couple of decades from now, when people go there, if what they see are large buildings and a little memorial, they are going to have a very poor impression of our generation," Giuliani told reporters.

So continuing to operate the WTC after the 1993 bomb which killed six was just a little greedy, then? Is the standard that if enough innocents are murdered, the murderers get to forever dictate the use of the crime scene—a solemn tomb—to society?

Sorry, Rudy. The best tribute to the fallen would showcase another bustling center of human activity—working, eating, buying, selling, yelling, crying, striving. Living.
