Has anybody SEEN the monstrosities they're proposing to replace the WTC towers? If it's true that architecture reflects the nature of a society, we're in bigger trouble than anyone realized.

Rebuilding Ground Zero And Protecting the Homeland At The Same Time
The Departments of Defense and Homeland Security have put forward a promising new design to replace New York's twin towers. The innovative plan - which preempts nine architectural designs unveiled December 18 - calls for two giant flyswatters, each over 1800 feet tall and capable of striking in any direction. Originally the brainchild of Homeland Security planners looking for a way to stop hijacked planes from reaching the City's key financial center, the twin-swatters idea was heartily endorsed by the Defense Department as vital to the Missile Defense Shield, which by presidential order must be deployed by 2004.
President Bush was enthusiastic when presented with the plan. "This will show the world we mean business," he said, "and prove to the terrists that they cannot succeed. We'll be sending a message to all those evildoers - go ahead, make my day." The Lower Manhattan Development Council (LMDC), which is overseeing the design competition, could not be reached for comment.
