And A Little Moron Shall Lede Them

You know, instead of bombing Al-Jazeera, let's do the world a favor and wipe the New York Times off the map. The Old Grey Mare, she ain't what she used to be — in fact, she is KNACKERED.

Oh no, you say? Then what in the fuck is this?
And the new "King Kong" has come to New York "in an incredible moment," Mr. Burns said. "It is a time of two powerful absences - the building that is not there, and the building that is going to be there."

But Kong may have lost much of his power to menace. "The threats to our architecture have surpassed the giant ape," said Debra Burlingame, a member of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation board whose brother, Charles F. Burlingame III, was a pilot of the plane that hit the Pentagon. "Airplanes with jet fuel were far more dangerous than any primate, however big."

In the future, then, will some filmmaker perpetrate another remake depicting a noble, misunderstood ape battling airborne weaponry atop the Freedom Tower, or other skyscrapers as yet unborn?
"THE THREATS TO OUR ARCHITECTURE HAVE SURPASSED THE GIANT APE"?

Yet more 9/11 pablum wrung from a sad old rag.

You're not wrong there...
...then again I remember the days when every piece of architecture was under threat from one sort of primate or another. There was the time that baboons took over the Natural history Museum in London during an act of terrorism linked to the troubles in Northern Ireland, and then there was the time that the Mandrills in the Basque country threw bananas repeatedly at some church or other in anticipation of independance.
But what really worries me is when these monkeys take over running newspapers.
