Memorials

As they are talking about stealing people's land to make a new memorial here is one that is going down hill. And it probably means more to more people.

I really do not understand the point of memorials.

It seems to me like in this case these people are just trying to preserve their jobs.  There was already a memorial and one that's still doing just fine economically in New Orleans...

I hate to use this term with memorial workers, but they seem like job zombies to me.  That is working to keep a job that doesn't accomplish anything.  I hesitated to use that term because memorials do accomplish something, but in this case there is already a memorial accomplishing the thing that this memorial set out to accomplish after it had already been accomplished.
