@Bambino,
Looks like they're in front of the towers. I guess it depends on your perspective. The "Survivor Tree" is among the bushes at the tower.

This is partly down to the trees. There are 416 in total, lined up in rows among the granite flagstones that pave most of the plaza. These are fledgling oak trees, babies born in a New Jersey nursery, their youth emphasised by the ribbons of fresh grass set at their feet.

But one is different. Pitched at the centre of the site, a lone pear tree sways in the breeze. The "Survivor Tree", as it has become known, stood between the Twin Towers – and was pulled from the rubble, implausibly alive, crown blown away, branches ripped to stumps. Yet it has spent the last decade being nursed back to health in Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx. As a metaphor for recovery it is mutely powerful. New limbs, tinged with the pale green of regrowth, can be seen sprouting from the sad stubs of the tree's first incarnation.

The Memorial's two true points of focus are positioned on either side of the Survivor Tree, where the footprints of the toppled World Trade Centre are delineated by two colossal square pools, 30ft deep. Water cascades down their interior flanks – right-angled Niagaras making their own statement about regeneration in the constant, recycled flow.

@thack45,
Compelling? No... It was a simple question. Was George W. Bush responsible?

I didn't make it as a compelling statement for you to get an argument out of. It was a question.

@Bambino,
You really think The Bush Gang was smart enough to pull that off? If you want an example of the "brilliance" of that administration take a look at Mission Accomplished in Iraq. I don't think Bush was behind anything other than Dick Cheney's ass.

@Bambino,
I agree it was a very simple question. You then followed the question with:

Apart from being an ineptly expressed "question," it was tendentious, and nobody here is stupid enough to fall for it. One would not ask the question unless one thought there were an argument for it.

Was Oprah Winfrey beind "them towers?"

Was Billy Graham behind "them towers?"

Was Pee Wee Herman behind "them towers?"

@Setanta,
I think Pee Wee Herman had a chance to be behind them, don't you?

I don't know who Bill Graham is and Oprah is only good for talking. But uh I don't agree with your tendentious statement. I think you were stupid enough to fall for it cause if you weren't you wouldn't of bothered to comment, always thinking!

@thack45,
I was properly thinking, not making an argument. That's what "Hmm" means!

@Bambino,
"Hmm" means you are filling time because you don't have anything intelligent to say. You can claim it's because you were thinking, but you had plenty of time to think before you posted. Obviously you didn't think at that time so we have no reason to believe you were thinking while you posted.
