CENK: "Bill, what do you say?"

BILL PRESS: "Let me tell you something, first of all, we're not talking ground zero, we're talking two blocks from ground zero, there are apartment buildings there, there's a catholic church there, a pizza parlor there. there are hotels there. there might even be a porn shop there.
