Just how afraid are we of the Freedom Tower?

Newspapers carried stories yesterday quoting government workers and Port Authority chairmen saying no to the idea of working in the Freedom Tower. But it is a question regularly asked in New York Times polls: “Would you be willing or not willing to work in one of the higher floors of a new building at the World Trade Center site?”

An amazing 40 percent–or about 335 respondents–said last month that they’d be willing, which is about the same as it was in 2002.

Explainable if the same 335 people get called all the time.
