Welcome to IWETHEY!

New An eloquent Mea Culpa heard on npr/Hear & Now this AM..
In that charming accént.. a [person unknown/missed start] noted the Neglect.. of such treasure-troves across France--a charge made way-back by a cited author--then compared with U.S. 'caretaking': ~~"You are younger, and your treasures/museums and such receive more attention, Care", etc.

No Excuses.. one Likes that in a spokes-person.
New ~200 years ago
Notre Dame was in such a dilapidated state that the city considered tearing it down. Only Victor Hugo's book about a certain bell ringer saved it from that fate. The revival spurred the last major renovation the building has seen.

But all in all, the structure has weathered the fire remarkably well. The falling spire punched a huge hole in the stone vaulted ceiling but the rest held up and protected the insides of the cathedral from total destruction.

(And re. one of your other posts, there was "only" 250 ton of lead in the spire alone...)
New Yah, further clarification of the definition of 'a tragedy' ...
A theory killed by a Fact..

Test:
How many recent HS-grads do you know, who can say what 'valence' means? Hmmm? :-/
