Did you know there was a Greek Orthodox that's nearby and destroyed when WTC fell on it? Do you know that they haven't been given their permit to rebuild but the city has given one to the imam? They've been trying since it was destroyed.. There's that double standard again. How long do we have to put up with it?

Did you know that the Greek Orthodox church has been allowed to rebuild the entire time? Did you know they are trying to broker a better deal with the port authority to get a new, bigger building? Did you know they turned down free land and $60 million because it wasn't enough? Did you know the port authority finally took the deal off the table because the church kept demanding more?

The church could have been rebuilt years ago if they were willing to keep their original location and pay for it themselves.

I think the online dating sites now cater not just to those that are "too busy" for a social scene. They are filled with people who are sick of the regular social scene (e.g., bars) for meeting people. There are people from all professions, faiths, and interests on them at this point.

This new service seems like it will be less rewarding and more expensive than regular dating sites.
