The September 11 memorial will list the names of the dead according to the World Trade Center tower they died in, the company they worked for or the plane they were on, a change from the random listing envisioned two years ago by the memorial's designer, officials said. The new arrangement announced Wednesday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg was supported by the memorial architect but outraged September 11 family members who wanted to list their loved ones' ages, the floor they worked on at the trade center and the ranks of fire and police officials who rushed into the buildings. "The question of how the names are listed evokes strong feeling and convictions from relatives, colleagues and friends of those we lost," said Bloomberg, the chairman of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation. "I have spent a lot of time listening to everyone's views on the subject, and there is no right answer. Nevertheless, it is time to move forward."
