Now with even more preservatives, to promote indigestion[edit]

"130 Liberty Street was originally intended to be gone by 2005, but the deadline was expanded to 2008. The fire means the work has been delayed a year with a revised estimated time of completion being 2009."

Over 6 years!?!? Where is this "Freedom Tower" we used to hear so much about?

Is this nation so fond of its scars that it will do all it can to preserve them? (QUINTIX - (talk) 21:32, 1 May 2008 (UTC)) (Now, for a flame war over "asbestos" and how the two towers would of stood up longer if that where used for fire protection in addition to/instead of the existing fireproofing.)

What really throws me is the idea that US work safety laws require you to add fire containment gear to a building just so you can strip it all off again and demolish it! A better idea would simply be decontamination barriers that opened up; firefighters could have just walked through then. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 06:32, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
