the line between petty and prudent

Billionaires tend to know about the bottomless sink of governmental and institutional incompetence and greed, but I wonder if they care about the workmen any bit more than the greedy incompetents do, which is to say they very truly don't.

I don't know. I've never been there. But from pictures and paintings it was never pretty from the outside and may actually be more of an attraction as a ruin than a restored cathedral anyway. The only thing that holds me back is that I've also seen pictures of the inside and I imagine that would not be so beautiful without a roof.

I guess all I'm sure about is that the place should not be updated. Put it back as it was, only newer, or only slap a roof back on that puppy, and to hell with the spires, or clean up the mess and leave it as it is. Any of those options are vastly better than letting the horrific tastes of masturbating architects chic their way into decimating history.

pipe up any time....
