I think the ghosts of the dead office workers that haunt the WTC site appreciate the humor. Afterall, they are ghosts, so anything to brighten their day, right?

Houston might get a 90 story tower......about 1400 ft. By a company out of Dubai.....so the likeliness it gets built is high.

what? just because the tower is by a company that happens to be in a city where anything and everything pointlessely gets built does not mean it will just automatically go up over here. Hope its built though. Got an article or a rendering on the tower?

I don't understand how people could possibly be making jokes about what happened on September 11. It was the most tragic day in our nation's history and had left thousands dead and even more without a family member. I recently saw the movie, United 93, and that really gave me a sense of what these poor people had to go through.

Wheather you like the Freedom Tower or not, it is stil to become a tribute and a symbol to our country.

There is a reason they decided to name it what they did.
