Ever since Maya Lin made the Vietnam Memorial look like a tomb, lefties seem to get the assignments to build our war memorials—which are more like anti-war, anti-American memorials. We need need to raze them and replace them with statues more like "The Minuteman."

Modern art is such a disappointment.

James Lileks had a great piece awhile back concluding that if we had any courage or conviction as a people the memorial at ground zero would consist of “stern stone eagles.” Instead, we have committees of the conflicted expressing nebulous feelings and vague ideas.

I agree with the article. Never liked Maya Lin's design. Thought it was a mistake when it got approved, and still think it's a mistake now.

The Flight 93 memorial plan is even worse than described in this article. If they've changed the title from "crescent of embrace" to "bowl of embrace," that's not good enough. Get the touchy-feely hippie "embrace" thing out of it altogether; and more importantly, get ALL of the Islamic imagery built into this design OUT.

Funny how both the Flight 93 memorial and the Arizona 911 memorial have the same shape.

Should have put two nuclear ballistic missile silos there instead of reflecting ponds as a warning to the next nation that harbors those who piss with us!
