‘Ground Zero’ is a term that no longer applies, according to NYC mayor
Ten years after the terrorist attacks, and less than a week from the ribbon-cutting at the new World Trade Center, the New York City mayor says it's time to retire Ground Zero.
In a speech delivered this morning on Wall Street, Michael Bloomberg said the new construction and memorial on the site has made the name no longer fitting, news site DNAinfo.com reports.
"We will never forget the devastation of the area that came to be known as 'Ground Zero' -- never," Bloomberg told the Association for a Better New York at a breakfast appearance, adding that the "the time has come for us to call those 16 acres what they are: The World Trade Center and the National September 11th Memorial and Museum."

I think they want to alter the myth of 9/11 so as to take it to the next level. Maybe if they wanted to move on they'd build something other than a hole at ground zero. Although I think that's the point, perpetual remembrance of that day that was a historical turning point but now no longer is so
