There are few who would dispute that the 40 heroic passengers and crew of Flight 93 deserve a memorial, like the others who died at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11.
That said, isn't it excessive to think the government needs 2,000 acres and $60 million for a simple monument commemorating these heroes? Worse, landowners, via congressional legislation, were forced to sell their property to establish the park. It doesn't seem fair, for one, to the landowners, and what about fiscal responsibility in the midst of a borderline depression?
It certainly seems extreme when compared with the simple beauty of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, built on less than an acre.
