The Freedom Tower

Construction on the Freedom Tower in New York City is well underway and it continues to rise to its final height of 1,776 feet tall.

Frankly, I really dislike the lame attempt at patriotism, to have purposely designed the building’s height to match the date of 1776 as if that's supposed to somehow thwart the effects of 9/11.

I really, really hope that the U.S. converts to the metric system before its completion. Then, instead of being 1,776 feet tall, it’ll be the totally insignificant number of 541 meters tall.

And the designers of the building will be all,
