Freedom Tower Topper

Walking to work this morning I saw this


which will shortly be hauled up over 1700′ to be placed atop this


As shiny as it may be I’m still not sold on this design. To me it looks like a high-falutin’ shampoo bottle.

And I have no idea who would want to work in the place.

    Really, it WAS the best design. If you’d taken a vote of the peeepul back then (or even 10 years later) it would have won.
    Even now, I think it would. But we have to have glass and meditation areas or whatever. Sigh.
    At least that topper looks nice and pointy – though I think a nice ICBM on the top would have sent a better message…

    The people who would agree to work in that place, btw – are probably mostly people who would have voted for that third finger… 😛

    Hello? Anyone else here (besides the ubiquitous Mr. Bingley)?

    Oh, nevermind, I like talking to myself anyway.

    @ Mr. Bingley. Totally off topic.

    Have you got another food post pending? Preferably something sweet, bitter, sour, salty or umami. (Oh, just Google that last – I can’t explain it except that it’s what your living garbage disposal likes best.)

    I’m caring for my father – who has no sense of smell – but taste still works. So, I’m looking for taste…

    I was torn by the designs, Kathy. My initial urge was to of course just re-build them as they were but then I grew very partial to the middle finger design, I will admit 🙂

    Kathy, food-wise of late we’ve been pretty low-key; just grilling simple things. But Daughter will be home soon and I’ll have an excuse to go a little crazy!

    If you like Brussel sprouts, my Bride has a fantastic oven-roasted method, really just olive oil and salt. Some of the leaves get crispy and salty and are simply divine…
