Does anyone think that Groening, et al, will change the opening sequence to eliminate the Planet Express spaceship smashing into the skyscraper?

dont think that they will do, because its "only" a comercial-screen they crash into.
But probably they will discuss about that at Fox

Well, I asked Eric Kaplan about it and he said this:
"Right now we're not leaning towards changing the opening, since it seems to us more like a spaceship crashing into a screen which just happens to be on a building, but who knows?  If people are disturbed by it we will most likely change it. "

I think they shld keep it the same, as right now there is barely a part of our lives not touched by what has happened.

Unless they decide it is time to make a totally new opening sequence it should stay the same. If anything that could cause slight upset were removed from TV there wouldn't be much on, would anybody say there should never be a depiction of a car crash, more people have been killed in car crashes over the years than were last week at the WTC

I think thats the best option.  If it actually does upset people then obviously, it would be a good idea to change it, but that part of the intro only bares a loose resemblance to what happened in America.

they should keep it. if we let what happened alter every detail of our lives we're just letting them win.

I think they won't change the opening, just look at the Simpsons one, it's the same for 10 years or so...

Yep, Matt Groening never changes his opening scenes.
Seath McFlare, Treay Parker and Matt Stone (The producers of Family Guy and South Park) but not Matt Groening.

It should stay the same, why should they change it beacause of what happened...I mean it's tragic, but it isn't meant to copy that disaster anyway... The only thing that would have been cool is if they put into the opening sequence different stuff, like the end of the Simpsons intro

Actually, the opening in Season 1 was a lot different. It's the same up until the pointv where Homer finds th plutonium rod in his shirt and chucks it out the car window. After that, Bart skateboards by, but instaed of going past recognizable characters, he passes by a bunch of generic types standing by a bus stop. He steals the bus stop sign, the bus misses the stop, and the people run like mad for it.

After that, we see Lisa on her bike, a big stack of books in the basket. She hits a bump, causing the stack to briefly fly up. She's the first to arrive home (instead of showing up after Bart in Season 2 and onward). She rides her bike into the garage with no further incident.

Other than that, the intro's the same.

I think it'd be spiffy if different people whizzed by in those tubes - or does that happen already?

I vote against changing the opening sequence. We should not have terrorist alter everything. It would only be some kind of "tribute" to them - another small childish victory they shouldn't have.
