  1. calling it “the Block” is very dis-respectful – why not just call it by its real name???

      Me thinks…Too much of this (political correctness)stuff on your side of the isle…

    • What is it’s real name then?

      This is what the VD called it, a “piece of limestone” –
      ” It also included an official dedication of a piece of limestone that broke off the Pentagon during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and has been installed in a memorial at Freedom Park-“http://www.vaildaily.com/article/20100531/NEWS/100539981

      A’ weapon of mass destruction limestone block’ also likely fits as a description – for the buildings became exactly that due to terrorists who entered our country via U.S. visa’s…

      But I suppose that descriptive word of ‘Islam Terrorist Attacks and Mass Destruction Commemorative Block’ is decidedly non-PC …
