Hopefully, this would be an incentive for more modern fire suppression systems to be installed in similar structures.  But I doubt it.  People are always more apt to ignore a possible problem, and then bemoan their losses when it eventually occurs.

 

Penny wise and pound foolish.  Out of sight, out of mind.  Ignorance is bliss.

 

Architecturally and anthropologically, I agree it's a sad loss.  But that's where it stops for me.

I agree on the premise but not the sentiment. If it was so precious why not invest as you say, but it still makes me SICK not for their huge error but for the world's loss. It's a bit more personal to me because loved ones invested the instillation of enough study and interest in me to associate the architectural antiquity with greater value than their clear lack of judgement. Maybe it was considered, possibly repeatedly, but there was some recurrent reasoning behind the great goof. Maybe we will find out! :love3:

When Apollo 11 was launched, NASA in conjunction with the United States Postal Service created 3 commemorative covers, each with the signatures of the 3 astronauts on the front.  Because the 10 cent airmail commemorative had not yet been issued, the USPS stamped these covers with the Apollo 8 commemorative.  Below is a facimile of one of those covers as well as the airmail issue  :thumbs up:   :thumbs up:   :thumbs up:
