NYC to reconsider 9/11 reading of names in future

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the relatives of 9/11 victims will be consulted about whether they wish to discontinue the annual readings of the names of the people who perished in the attacks.

Every ceremony to mark the attacks anniversary has included a reading of the names of the dead. It will also be part of this year's 10th anniversary ceremony.

During his weekly WOR radio appearance Friday, Bloomberg said the question of whether to discontinue the tradition has come up before. He said some people believe change is good while others think the solemn reading of the each victim's name should go on forever.

The mayor said the 9/11 memorial foundation will talk to family members and first responders to gauge their feelings.
