The Trump World Trade Center

With the long-troubled quest to rebuild at Ground Zero seemingly headed back to the drawing board, into the breach has stepped Donald Trump, whose organization has come up with a design proposal of its own.

Trumpís design is said to be a more modern version of the original World Trade Center, except that it will be one storey taller (to which a representative of architect Daniel Libeskind replied, "I suppose Trump wants to add an extra floor to make room for his name.Ē)

If the design is as garish as some of the other Trump-inspired architecture, then Iím not too excited about this. Then again, whatever he comes up with couldnít possibly be worse than Libeskindís convoluted Freedom Tower, and Trump might just be the man to cut through the bureaucratic nightmare that has thus far characterized the rebuilding effort.

I wonder if it will go bankrupt like just about every other The Donald venture.

How is the apprentice master gonna fill the new Islamists wet dream target -- which they probably think will get them at least 74 virgins (two more than usual for killing the infidel).
