Like it or not, Notre Dame is/was a magnificent piece of historical, gothic, architecture, and it saddens me to see it so badly damaged.
I hope it can be restored.

When the Barcelona opera was burned, they were repairing it and with the fire they saved his money it because all the musicians donated millions for the new opera.

Can I think the same badly for Notre Dame?

It seems like there already are some wealthy donators stepping in here. Things could be recreated for sure but it will never be quite the same.
Whatever. We'll go there and burn the house down. Come on. Please...

Probably more worthy.
And probably not mutually exclusive.

Let the state rebuild the cathedral and the church rebuild the lives of those in need. Sounds fair.

If they have collected 1000 million euros in 24 hours for notre dame.
Confirms that poverty is a political decision.

That would certainly seem to be the case.
Sadly. *:|*

Australia held an election for the national government on the weekend.
The result was a surprise and not the one I wanted.

I'll say no more about it. :(

Egg boy's favourite party lost sadly, but the racist who wore the egg also lost his seat, so it wasn't entirely wasted. :|

Australian politics 101:
The Liberal Party is NOT a liberal party.
It's a right wing tory party and it won the election.
The other major party is the Labor Party which originated as a workers' party created by the Trades Unions.
Labor IS a liberal party.
Lots of minor parties but it is always either Labor or Liberal who govern.
I support the Labor Party.
