Today's News - December 19, 2002

The eyes of the world were on New York City yesterday. The Winter Garden in Lower Manhattan was a veritable sea of international media. We have sifted through the several hundred articles that appeared around the globe, and selected the few that actually offer analysis, opinion…or just plain attitude (there will surely be more voices chiming in over the next few days). As a reality check, we've included today's reader forums from the New York Times and BBC. Most of the articles include links to the proposed designs for Ground Zero. If you haven't already, it is definitely worth your time to explore the presentations and make up your own mind.
