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.
