WTC Hate-America Museum Idea Is Nixed

I will admit it. Some news is just too depressing/maddening for me to even deal with. The planned "International Freedom Center" at the site of the World Trade Center was one of those stories which so totally got me down that you won't find a single reference to it on CUANAS.

Until today, because the whole stupid idea got shit-canned by the most excellent Governor Pataki:

(New York -AP, Sept. 28, 2005) - Gov. George Pataki on Wednesday ousted a proposed freedom museum from its site at ground zero, declaring that the International Freedom Center has generated “too much opposition, too much controversy” to remain.

The decision follows months of acrimony over the Freedom Center, with furious families and politicians saying that the museum would dishonor the memory of the 2,749 people who died at the World Trade Center.

“We must move forward with our first priority, the creation of an inspiring memorial to pay tribute to our lost loved ones and tell their stories to the world,” Pataki said in a statement.

All I can say is: YES!!!

And really, eff all of you who came up with that hate-America idea. I wish you would all just move to France, for God's sake.
