AZ 9-11 Memorial to Remain Unchanged?
Update: Our buddy Dangerus has been all over this story
, and particularly Eppinger.
Well, it looks like Janet Napolitano has successfully kicked this issue
down the road past the election.Munsil raised the issue again during a televised debate Thursday evening, saying the monument fails to honor victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. Gov. Janet Napolitano said she will recommend the commission that created the memorial use its best judgment in reviewing what, if any, changes should be made. But she said she won't recommend specific changes.
And any changes that do occur are likely to happen after the Nov. 7 election.
What they mean to say is that there will be no changes, as Janet will have weathered the storm and still gotten reelected.
The monument was designed with exactly the same number of letters in the inscriptions as victims that day. Astoundingly, some of the members of the commission which created the memorial wanted to include 19 more letters; for those poor terrorists who also perished! Video here
I did a little digging into Paul Eppinger, the director of the commission that designed the memorial. It appears that Eppinger should have listened to his own advice
from 2003:Paul Eppinger, executive director of the Arizona Interfaith Movement spoke at the gathering. Mr. Eppinger stated that instead of efforts to build memorial monuments, we should actively convey peace messages to the younger generations.
Eppinger also appeared at a gathering
of "progressive" (code for socialist) Democrats.
