On Behalf of NC, I Apologize

For what, you say? For this asshat:

Family members of those killed on United Flight 93 are urging a North Carolina congressman to lift his hold on funding for a memorial planned for the Pennsylvania site where the plane crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Nearly a dozen family members are scheduled to meet with their members of Congress on Wednesday to encourage them to sign a letter that asks Rep. Charles H. Taylor, R-N.C., to support $10 million for the project.

Taylor, chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the Interior Department, has blocked millions in funding for the project in the last two years, and has expressed opposition to funding it when it comes up again before his committee May 3, said John Scofield, the House Appropriations Committee spokesman.

The White House has requested $5 million for the nearly 1,700-acre site in remote western Pennsylvania as part of a larger spending bill.

As Raven states (where I first saw who the nimrod was, having not read the story before,) write Rep. Taylor. Write him often. Write him here.

    Agreed, I’m very disappointed in this guy. I’ll be shooting you an e-mail soon.

    Trey cool.

  3. The proposed memorial will honor the memory of the hijackers as well as the victims. The thing will be shaped like a giant Islamic crescent. Deal with those problems and I’ll *maybe* think about writing him.

  4. […] I previously mentioned what was going on with the Flight 93 Memorial here, regarding Rep. Charles Taylor’s (R-NC-asshat)├é┬áblocking the funding, and here regarding how the Memorial was redone so as not to include the Islamic Cresent. […]
