Not Alfa related, but our condolences to those in France, esp Paris, at the very sad sight of the icon of Paris Notre Dame cathedral burning, suffering massive damage. Having visited it several times ourselves, and being students of cathedral design, we have always marveled at the classic Gothic design and the unmistakable beauty of the Rose windows. At least, it is thankfully apparent that no lives were lost, and thus far, it is assumed that it was not a political act as was the Trade Towers in New York.
Gothic cathedrals are marvelous structures, to say nothing of their social relevance to many people, esp for their time of creation. Unfortunately, many cathedrals and castles have had their wooden roofs burn (it seems to be a given) through the centuries, and the present day authorities have always been reluctant to install fire suppression equipment, altering these historic icons of human creativity. Hopefully, it will be rebuilt, with a metal roof and adequate fire fighting systems. Will take many decades I suspect.
Again, our condolences.
