The Slow Bureaucratic Pace of “Freedom”
The Golden Gate Bridge opened in 1937 and took men using construction tools of the time, just over 4 years to build.
The twin towers at the World Trade Center took around 5 years to build both buildings.
Yet somehow over 8 years have gone by since the attacks on September 11th, and we have nothing to show for it except for a hole at ground zero.
The planned, and inappropriately named, freedom tower won’t be open in time for the 10 year anniversary of the terror attacks in 2011.
