Construction begins on NY's Freedom Tower.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - One day after resolving issues between a developer and landowners, bulldozers rumbled into a giant pit on Thursday to begin construction of the glittering Freedom Tower skyscraper meant to symbolize New York's resilience to the September 11 attacks.

Rebuilding at the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan began 4 1/2 years after the Twin Towers were destroyed by suicide hijackers who flew passenger planes into them.

The 1,776-foot (540-meter) tower will be among the tallest in the world.

I figured when it got destroyed the first time it would just be replaced by about 4 smaller buildings... but alas, I under estimated the people who want to prove that everyone in America has a bigger penis than everyone else in the world so we need a huge tower to prove it. *smirk*

It's ridiculous and unsafe. I know that I would never, ever want to be inside it.
