It looks like they may have listened to a little of what I said when it was first announced that New York’s upcoming Freedom Tower would be redesigned. It still doesn’t beat Trump’s plan, but at least they’re heading in the right direction.

That’s right, the Freedom Center plans have gone from ‘terribly uninspiring and pretty ugly’ to ‘eh, that’s not too bad.’

Another two or three of these mysterious security redesigns (I think that’s a euphemism for ‘deuglification’) and maybe we’ll have something impressive and awe-inspiring to build in lower Manhattan. Imagine that. . . .

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
