On that note, Michael Lewis (of Moneyball, et al) has an excellent new podcast series called Against The Rules. First episode is about NBA refs.

Not a Catholic, but the beauty of this Cathedral was breathtaking

Will have to go trolling back through my photos and video
Same here, in the early 90’s, climbing the stairs to the top and all.

Some billionaire has vowed to pay for it’s full reconstruction.

I think reconstruction is worthy, but its still not the same sadly. Had a look back through pics/vids from 2014 and with three cameras running there are a lot of pics there; some of the artefacts inside that were intricately constructed into the façade made with timber are just lost.

even with all the fire around the Alter is still (somewhat) intact.
Looks promising...some of those timber altars to the right seem intact. Hopefully the smoke and water doesn't have too much impact. IIRC most of the ornate timber and masonry was to the sides of the roof.

Daylight will give a better indication.

Not appropriate to troll anyone including yourself after such an incident.
