    [FONT=Trebuchet MS]No it's not. Mind you... I don't have an opinion for or against these stairs. But I don't think those advocating their removal are folks who don't care about the people in the towers that day. There is emotional thinking -- what you're doing -- and there is practicall thinking -- what the developers are doing. Life is about balacing those two.[/FONT]



    Your argument doesn't make sense. This is about removing a piece of the building today -- not before the attacks. Saying that you want the stairs gone now does not mean that you didn't want them there on 9/11 to allow people to use them.
    If you believe this is a balancing act, I suggest you read this thread. http://forums.firehouse.com/showthread.php?t=38943

    No mention of the date, randomness of the victims name in the so called memorial. Thats not practicallity.

      I'm not a big fan of the memorial as it is planned. However, I wasn't suggesting that the memorial would be a balance of practicality and emotion. I was saying that life in gernal should be -- that we can't be wholly emotional or practical all of the time.

        So if we get attacked again, youre not gonna step up to help, "because its not within your boundaries" I'd say thats just as extreme as dragging someone through the streets. Real Patriotic bunch we got here.
        I don't see his post suggesting that at all. I, too, agree that much of the decisions about the property should be local. Local, of course, means the people who live or work in the area -- not people like me who've never had the chance to step foot in New York City.

        Also, show me where he says he wouldn't help in the event of another attack. NOWHERE does he even remotely imply that! Don't take a conversation about what to do with a piece of the World Trade Center and try to make it into something it's not. The discussions on these forums often go to the crapper not because someone posts something extreme -- but because someone finds extreme words where there are none.

          Yeah...What he said! The stairs are standing tall. WE as a nation stood tall. Why should they come down?

          Keep the stairs! Support our troops!

            That staircase is a real life example of a miracle that occurred on that tragic day. They need to be preserved and displayed for all future generations to learn what we lost on that day. I don't care if they "interfere" with a developer's plans or if someone in the neighborhood just doesn't want to look at it anymore because they want some high priced shopping instead.
