    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, give it Narcan.

    Your hunch may prove to be correct, because it is one hell of a fire...

    That thing has survived two world wars and, I believe, all seven crusades. I guess all good things must come to an end at some point.

    And somewhere a Mullah is praising Allah for the destruction of this old infidel church.

    From what I can tell, they need to bring in the excavators and get busy ripping that thing down to the dirt. 900 year old wood burns hot and I doubt the masonry/stone will be in good enough shape to go forward on the rebuild. Praying that they can save some of it anyway...

    It looked like it was under construction of some sort. Did it not look like scaffolding all around it? Ole Frenchy smokin' too many cigarillos

    Imagine being the minimum wage guy using an angle grinder, when you should have been using bolt cutters, that started the fire, that but down the most famous cathedral on the planet.

    This is horrible. Visiting there was surreal. Paris is a dirty city but it has some beautiful landmarks and countryside.
