ISN'T THE ENTIRE COUNTRY A COMMEMORATION SITE FOR THE INDIANS?:

'Ground Zero Mosque' Clears Legal Hurdle to Build (RESHMA KIRPALANI, July 13, 2011, ABC News)
In a decision on Friday that was made public today, New York State Supreme Justice Paul Feinman dismissed a lawsuit by former firefighter Timothy Brown who argued that New York City was wrong to allow the destruction of a 150-year-old building to make way for the Islamic center. The ex-firefighter who was among those who responded to the terror attack on the World Trade Center said the old building had been struck by debris during the collapse of the twin towers and was a "living representative of the heroic structures that commemorate the events of that day." In a 15-page decision Feinman wrote, "Mr. Brown's claim that his ability to commemorate will be injured, is not yet recognized under the law as a concrete injury that can establish standing. Such an injury, although palpable to Brown, is immeasurable by a court."
Well, he's definitely not a Boston firefighter.
