Speaking of missed opportunities. filmmaker/blogger Greg Allen thinks on his submission of a memorial plan for the World Trade Center site:
Grand public rituals?the design and memorial competitions, various groundbreakings?were designed to move us all along, nothing to see here. And while it's not a story that's on the front page of my mind every day, it certainly turns up in my A-section with a frequency that'd earn a Times editor or CNN producer a concerned call from upstairs.The whole essay is worth the read.
