.... this monstrosity:
.... why can't we build beautiful buildings again?
I've been saying that we've lost something for years. Go look at the court house in Decatur Texas and ask yourself if we could build something like that today or if we would even be motivate to do so for a mere county courthouse. Look at some of the catherdals in Europe that were built to glorify God. I'm not doubting anyones faith but most of the churches around here are sheet metal barns.

Thanks for that link, Mikey! It is a beautiful building and has quite a history! :o)
Unfortunately, the architects and craftsmen who designed and built those beautiful buildings are no longer with us.
It is a shame.Go on Google Earth and "walk" around the old parts of any city - there are so many magnificent buildings! :o)
