Who's afraid of the big, bad buildings? Everyone, because there are so many things about giantism that we just don't know.

The Trade Center towers could be the start of a new skyscraper age or the biggest tombstones in the world.
- Ada Louise Huxtable, "Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Buildings?", New York Times, May 29, 1966
