We can agree that this is not the Eiffel Tower, can't we?
Man is responsible for the construction of the Pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China, The Colosseum in Rome... and probably some other cool stuff too. But man was also responsible for THIS monstrosity of a building. Sorry if that's harsh, but I have to look at it every day. I feel like yelling, "Mr. Gorbachev. Tear down these walls"! Or Mr. Williamson. Or Mr. Kumar. Or Mother Nature. Somebody! And I thought the last 40 years haven't been so kind to me...
It used to be that you could somewhat ignore the building, avoid eye contact with it, as you drove or strolled by. This has not been possible since the city condemned the building and erected 8-foot barricades on the sidewalk and into the streets around this behemoth. The barricades not only obstruct downtown traffic, but also creates the illusion that the building is some kind of sedated King Kong and it's only a matter of time until he becomes lucid enough to strike.
Feel free to comment if you have your own caption for this photo or suggestion as to what this ground could better be utilized for. I am not moving on with this blog until I am convinced there is a Flintoid out there who feels the same about this building.
