I'm with BKM on this one. Although I feel that that current replacement design lacks a lot to be desired, the idea of erecting an exact copy of what was there is far, far worse. First of all, to be perfectly honest, the original twin towers were ugly thin windowed boxes. And although the engineering of the towers was revolutionary, the design was pretty much uninspired. Additionaly, maybe it's just me, but isn't this idea a bit morbid?
