Skeletons in the (museum) Closet: Part 3

The 9/11 bones debate continues! Last week a judge rejected the request made by 17 relatives of 9/11 victims to release the addresses of other families so they could conduct a poll as to where unidentifiable remains should be placed.

From Fox News:

the objecting families feel a museum is no place for their loved ones’ remains. They bristle at the prospect of passing a gift shop and tourists on their way to pay respects 70 feet underground. They want the remains to be put in a separate space on the memorial plaza that opened this Sept. 11, seeing that as a more respectful treatment.

“I think that would bring some more reverence to it,” says Jim Riches, a retired firefighter who lost his firefighter son Jimmy in the attack.

Riches and others who sued want to survey the full roster of trade center victims’ families to gauge opinion — something the city’s letter doesn’t invite.
