Flight 93 Memorial to Honor the Terrorists

Apparently the winning design for the Flight 93 memorial, chosen from 1,011 entries, is a large muslim crescent.

No, I'm not kidding. I'm sickened.

For starters, the designer, Paul Murdoch, called it "Crescent of Embrace". (Please refrain from vomiting.) Now, take a look at a breakdown over a zombietime. Then read this blog for more info.

Think it's just coincidence? If you stood in the center of this crescent with your back to the crash site, you will be facing Mecca.

Paul Murdoch is a well-known Bush-bashing professor at USC, and this design appears to be his grand stab at the right. How better to get Bush's goat than to create a momorial to the terrorists right under Bush's nose? He's been posting to blogs recently, and had this to say over at robertgreenwald.org:
"...The only problem is the goal is to help corportations (sic). What's next, will he vote to take away the overtime pay that Bush tried last time or how about settling the asbestos claims that the Republican's (sic) want so badly. Once again the working class has been defeated. This time from one of our own."

Perhaps we could pick one of the other 1,010 design options?
