Flight 93 memorial still $10M short on funds - USATODAY.com
With all due respect to the 40 people on that plane that mustered the fortitude to try to save their own lives... and to all of the Americans whose hearts are in the right place...The Flight 93 memorial is projected to cost $72 million. The federal government provided $24 million, $18 million is to come from the state of Pennsylvania, and the remainder is to be raised.
ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME?!
$72 million? Seriously? Our airport didn't cost the much!
How about half a million for the memorial and $71 million to the first responders that actually saved lives at the cost of their own on that day or have since died of or are suffering from various maladies related, but have no relief or assistance? Sure, let's piss away $72 million on an empty field in rural PA while more and more action heroes die. Un-freaking-real!
