I wish Troofers would drop the notion that the WTC was worthless. You'd think that some of them would notice that there are a heckuva lot of highrises that were constructed in New York City prior to the WTC, and virtually all of them have asbestos-containing materials.

They also don't seem to realize that Silverstein tried to insure the buildings for less than they were worth, but that his lenders insisted on a higher level of coverage.
