It is a sad commentary that in the short time since the disaster, we have to a reasonable solution to re-construction only to have the leasee trying to exercise rights beyond his authority. Unless there is a very unusal lease arrangemnt, Mr. Silverstein has no authroity to ditate tothe Port Authroity, what will be built on the site [which the Authroity owns]. The solution was open to a selected few, granted, but in the end it is the public at large [the City and State of New York] and the Port Authority] who are the holders of the land. Me thinks Mr. Silverstein should back off, and let the selected architect proceed with his design-- and the Port Authroity should understand that their best interest and that of the eventual using public lies in the fact that the re-construction shallbe accomplished in accord with the building code of the City of New York. Mr. S and PA-- stop playing nonsensecial games!
