Bloomberg having second thoughts

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been feeling the heat with his support of the proposed International Freedom Center. And now he's starting to think that maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all:

After standing by plans to house the International Freedom Center at Ground Zero, Mayor Bloomberg suggested for the first time yesterday that he may now be iffy on the controversial project.

Speaking to reporters, he said directors of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. should study the IFC's new outline of its programming plans to "see if we can't come to some resolution."

He added: "If you can't, then you just can't do it."

I'm glad to see Bloomberg and other local politicians finally coming around on this nonsense. While it is certainly not a bad thing to celebrate examples of freedom around the world, this brand of PC inclusiveness has no place in a memorial for the victims of 9/11.
