WTC Chaos Update: Freedom Tower Set Free?

1) BREAKING!! After weeks of pointless bickering, developer Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority are close to a deal on the Freedom Tower. Under the deal, Silverstein would retain development rights to several parcels at Ground Zero but cede control of the Freedom Tower—a move that could result in the Freedom Tower being scrapped or reconceived. Or, you know, they could build that ugly mofo. [NYTimes]
2) Indeed, to reiterate yesterday's linkage: Pataki thinks Freedom Tower "still makes sense." Also thinks Isiah Thomas is "most visionary GM of his generation." [Crain's]
3) Seventeen-day vigil protesting WTC memorial ends. Just to rub it in, they're going to build it anyway. [NYDailyNews]
