WTC kin rip name plan; Mayor Bloomberg yawns

New York Post: WTC Kin Rip Mike ‘DISORDER’

A coalition of 9/11 families will launch a TV ad campaign today opposing Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to list most victims at the World Trade Center Memorial in random order.

The plan backed by Bloomberg will organize the names of 2,979 victims randomly around the memorial’s reflecting pools. Most names will be grouped only by the tower the victims were in.

[Edie] Lutnick and other 9/11 family members say they want the names and ages of their loved ones grouped by the firm they were working with, with the floor numbers and company affiliation spelled out.

September 11th Families Kick-off National Campaign Appealing to the American People to Urge Change at Ground Zero Memorial

New York, N.Y., January 24, 2007 – Family members of relatives lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 representing major 9/11 family organizations held a press conference today in New York City and unveiled a national media campaign asking the American people to help them “Save the 9/11 Memorial” at Ground Zero. Family leaders object to current plans that will list most of the names of 2,979 people who perished in the attacks of 2001 and 1993 without reference to age, affiliation, location and, in the case of uniformed service members, rank. The group plans to place 60 second television ads in New York City markets.
