But the design mostly seems to honor the politicians who thought it would be a swell idea to have a marker honoring the victims of 9/11.

“I mean, how freaking narcissistic can you be?” Dennis Ryan, a retired cop in town, said on Tuesday.

Mayor Samir Elbassiouny told the Lehigh Valley News earlier this week he did not understand why the stone’s inscription was an issue.

Today, it was removed.
