Taking the Towers out of any film destroys its integrity.

It is also colossally stupid and short-sighted. Imbecilic and offensive. Cowardly and submissive.

Here in NY, everyone is buying posters/photos/keyrings that show the city in its glorious once-was before
war was declared . . . we've got posters in our cars, on our keyrings, on our office walls, in our store
windows . . . even silhouettes on windshields . . . I,
for example, have it so that I am looking at the proper
NYC skyline over the Brooklyn Bridge wherever I go.

So what Hollywood jackass thinks that we should cower
and forget? To quote PeeWee Herman, I say, let him go . . .
