Vague Rumor: Silverstein Out and Ground Zero?

The Post appears to have a juicy scoop this morning?that Governor Pataki and Mayor Bloomberg are plotting to oust developer Larry Silverstein from the WTC redevelopment project. How will they do that, given that the dude owns the site lease? We'd tell you more, but the Post won't send us the password that's now required to read its online content.

In protest, we turn to the Free Lance Star of Fredericksburg, VA, in which Silverstein says, "They were already making burial plans. But the seventh or eighth day, I came around." Dear old Milt Silverstein?how you gonna stop that pain, Pataki?
