Sad Follow-up

Bizarre news about Ara Pacis: seems some vandals took issue with the design. Or something. Even the almost-Fascist Mayor of Rome condemned that act (though he's still negotiating to have Meier 'revise' his design.)

I don't know. Positive spin: it's cool to see somebody get so worked up over architecture? Yeah, that's a pretty weak argument. Bottom line: this temple was more than half buried for 1,600 years - nobody's afraid of a little paint.
