planning is a matter of intention - it is what the planner is seeking to do that matters.

of course I agree with you - but only with planning undertaken with honest intent. Do I trust the average New Yorker ? Yes. Do I trust the US administration or financial institutions ? Not for one second.

in civilised nations we make an assumption of good intentions of seeking to make things better - to use advances in technology and understanding from the improvement of all.

are Bush and Blair seeking to improve the world ?

until they are removed and decent human beings start putting the world back on a more honest course, any planning must be short-term.

a memorial ? the New york firefighters have a modest memorial (from long before 9.11). It is to remember those that gave their lives in the line of duty trying to save others.

just remember that when Bush was asked by the Mayor of Hiroshima to visit the Hiroshima memorials and peace centre, he refused. No surprise, the Klan is not famous for its humanity.
