Yesterday New York City's Landmarks Preservation Committee effectively greenlighted the proposed Muslim Center two blocks from Ground Zero by unanimously voting not to give historic protection to the existing building on the center's proposed building site. Takeaway listeners on both sides of the issue responded to the building of the Cordoba Center in downtown Manhattan.
Steve King reached us via email:
"If we really want to strike a blow against al-Qaida, we should embrace moderate muslims even near the 'hallowed ground' spoken about in the show. Christians and Jews and folks of other faiths could walk over at lunchtime and shake some hands. Take that, Bin Laden!"
