This sounds like a waste of money for taxpayers and some nice free perks.

One vote:

From the second paragraph: "The governor, in New York City to meet with American Express and other companies looking to expand in Utah...."

The governor was in New York courting businesses to establish a presence in the state of Utah. That's called economic development. How would a side trip to Ground Zero constitute a waste of taxpayers' money?

It's hard to believe that there is still no replacement for the twin towers. That is very valuable real estate and there's still just dirt there. Why hasn't something been build?

Is it government red tape? Is it lack of a plan? Are we afraid of offending a radical? Are we just paralyzed? Are we just not capable of building anything in the age of "hope and change"?

Ugh! Ten years. Maybe we should extend benefits for people who just don't want to do anything. Maybe then something will be done. (Sorry for the sarcasm)

I wish they would leave those big spotlights on all night every night. Americans don't need to let the memory of this event fade from their minds.

Some of us don't need a symbol to remember 9/11. I'm reminded every single time I hear an airplane in the sky. And everytime I hear a jet - I live near multiple air force bases - I wonder what they are doing and why they are in the sky. 9/11 was eery here, as you could hear only hear the fighter jets, but they were too high to see. I don't think those old enough to know the consequences of 9/11 will ever forget.
