NEW YORK - The foundation in charge of developing ground zero's memorial and museum pledged to permanently display the two pieces of steel left standing in the shape of a cross after the World Trade Center collapsed.

Shortly after 9/11, all World Trade Center rubble, including steel supports (analysis of which could put the lie to the demolition-charges hypothesis), were shipped off as scrap to foreign countries to be destroyed and re-used. But perhaps ironically, one piece remains. This piece wasn't melted by aviation fuel which burns about 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit less than required to melt steel. What chemical traces does it bear? Let's test it!

Still in its last throes

Recall this from June of 2005:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The insurgency in Iraq is "in the last throes," Vice President Dick Cheney says, and he predicts that the fighting will end before the Bush administration leaves office.

Four more were killed today. The sooner the Bush administration leaves office, the better.
