The Freedom Tower gets a new name

Ground ZeroNo more Freedom Tower.

The tower being built atop Ground Zero to replace the Twin Towers which fell in the devastating terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, will now be known as One World Trade Center.

Steve Sigmund, the spokesperson for the Port Authority (who owns the site), says the name is more marketable. One World Trade Center is the address of the future building.

To be fair, “Freedom Tower,” does sound a little bit like it came out of a comic book, and it reminds us of that whole “Freedom Fries” debacle which was so generally embarrassing.

One World Trade Center. Personally, I want to open a burger shack nearby and name it Another World Trade Center.
