Freedom-Mongering Not OK, Shopping Definitely OK


We haven’t posted anything on the news that the Freedom Center, slated in the eyes of some of the public and fewer of the press for a spot at Ground Zero, had been very recently ousted because, quite frankly, we couldn’t think of anything more superficially boring. Lots of politics and behind-the-scenes dealing so getting the real story (which we’re sure is fascinating) would probably land us behind bars or at least even less semi-employed. So we’re leaving the muddle well enough alone. But we couldn’t help notice the Times article about the new plans for 200,000 square feet of retail space.

After all, shopping saves.
