Is this what matters most about the reconstruction of the World Trade Center, that it be "officially deemed" the tallest building in the country?
I'm sure that the victims of the attacks of 9/11 would be very proud that the building that rose from the ashes and twisted steel would be proclaimed our tallest edifice.
A triumph! 1776 feet tall! What a coincidence!
That is what's important, isn't it?
