A view obscured by trees

From the Denver Post, 9-13: "A proposed crescent-shaped memorial to 9/11 victims killed in Pennsylvania too closely resembles a key symbol of Islam and should be scrapped because the terrorist hijackers were "radical Islamists," Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo said Tuesday. In a letter to the National Park Service, Tancredo said that the plan for the memorial at the site where hijacked United Flight 93 crashed "has raised questions in some circles about whether the design, if constructed, will in fact make the memorial a tribute to the hijackers rather than the victims."

Sometimes, symbolism just sucks. Sometimes, you gotta wonder what artists are thinking. And sometimes ... it's just a semi-circle of trees.
