Eisenhower Memorial

Yeesh. The controversy over the proposed Eisenhower Memorial has got Congress all riled up. A hearing on Tuesday had Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) exclaiming, "I want to know how we came up with this monstrosity." Another Congressman has called for scrapping the $100 million financing for this project and having a new design competition. Will that make these Eisenhower Memorial renderings go the same way as the dolphin hotel once planned for the Mall? [NYT; previously; previously]
