July 4th Wish - Bring Back the "Can-Do"
Almost 7 years later, Ground Zero, where the World Trade Center stood, is a 16-acre reminder of bureaucratic gridlock as 19 governmental entities "each lay claim to some component of the project", according to the latest Port Authority analysis.
The most optimistic scenario has the new structure opening no earlier than 10 years after 9/11.
The wish on this July 4th... lets make government accountable again. Let's return to a "can do" approach, what made America great.
A shining reminder of this is the Empire State Building. The entire building was constructed in just one year and 45 days -- an amazing feat -- both on time and $10 million under its $50 million budget.
HAPPY 4th of JULY !!!
