" [Jeffrey] Abramson wants to build a 12-story monument dedicated to peace and freedom -- a "Tower of Invincibility," as he calls it -- smack in the middle of Washington.
In Lafayette Square, perhaps, across the street from the country's reigning symbol of supposed invincibility, the White House. Another ideal location, Abramson said at a news conference yesterday, would be the Mall, home to memorials for World War II veterans and Abraham Lincoln. Of course, the Mall is already home to another tower, a little something known as the Washington Monument.
- "The list of projects that the Tower Cos., his family's real estate firm, have built include White Flint Mall..." Why not build the tower of transcendentalism at the White Flint Mall? Because that would be very, very American. Even better yet, tear down the White Flint Mall and then build the tower.
- Why does peace have to be such an eyesore?
