    I’m in Paris currently. I’m an atheist but it’s still pretty damn sad to watch.

    LOL, your seatmate at games is rubbing off on you (and don't anyone go making a Bob Kraft joke on my innocent cliche comment).

    when you consider what's going on over there. it most likely is. i read a report that says the powers that be are treating it as an incident.

    Awful. I was there ages ago. Taking my daughter's family on a Paris to Normandy river cruise this summer and of course I was planning to go see the view from the gargoyles again. Serious sympathy to the French people and to humanity which has lost an historical world treasure.
    Goes to show that nothing can be taken for granted in our lives.

    I did get to go to Notre Dame once and seeing all this go down is pretty sad. I don't know where it stands on the list of important sites in the world but it's up there. It's a lot sadder to me than I would have guessed and I'm not even a Papist.

    Yeah, really shocking and depressing 900 years of history and art gone. I tuned in after the roof had collapsed couldn't watch for more than ten minutes. it angered me that even though it was really still burning (as in your picture) i noticed there was just ONE fire hose. If this was NYC or Boston there'd be ten even at that point. Imo it reeks of incompetence if what i was seeing happened because the Paris fire dept didn't have the equipment to fight a large fire like this.

    That's impressive. As someone once said about Gene Wolfe, there is no one better at convincing you that (correctly-written) English might actually be a foreign language.

    Apparently the frame is saved ...
    I am sure they can build it again as a replica but it's still not the same ... sadly.

    That looked really bad, I totally see where the dislike came from.

    I'm Catholic, this pains me!

    Yeah, this news made the rounds here even.

    I'm about to go to Europe for R&R; even as a non-observant Jew, the Duomo in Milan is a planned stop for me. I had hoped to see Notre Dame one day, but never got the chance to. See things while you still can; the Duomo, the Maldives, the leaning tower of Pisa, etc.

    It's too bad.
