Put up another tower . . . put up another target?
Certainly there are those that already plan a shining, defiant replacement.
Could "the corporation" resist such an idea?
Donald Trump is said to be expressing the notion of building the world's tallest tower there.  I doubt he is alone.
I think Roger Ebert has a good idea because I think it's about your connection to the earth, your feet on the soil, not about your greedy head in the corporate clouds.
And since you have called for comment on this, Tom, what do you think?

Hi Arthur!

that's not what the link says...

> Certainly there are those that already
> plan a shining, defiant replacement.

depends what you consider to be "defiant"

> Could "the corporation" resist such
> an idea?

not likely.  they have the whole "bottom line" thing, and humanity got buried by
that some time ago.

> Donald Trump is said to be expressing
> the notion of building the world's
> tallest tower there.  I doubt he is alone.

best way to defeat a foe
is to take away their power.

let "the donald" have his "tallest"
as long as his office
is on the top floor.

> I think Roger Ebert has a good idea
> because I think it's about your
> connection to the earth, your feet on
> the soil, not about your greedy head
> in the corporate clouds.

and i just thought it was a pretty idea
and a nice sentiment!

> And since you have called for comment on
> this, Tom, what do you think?

i liked what he said.

making a park there basically "flips the bird" to every "power" involved.

rebuild?  no.  renew.

it's a reversal of circumstance,
if that makes any sense...tom
