So Are We an Endangered Monument or Species?

Lisa of Garden fame  posted this little tidbit on the World Monument Fund’s 100 Most Endangered Monuments. While I do agree with WMF’s concern about historical monuments, I also have to wonder about the extinction of Homo New Orleansis.
One could easily save the old buildings and put them under a glass dome. That’ll save the monuments, but what about the people who lived with these buildings, many of who’s ancestors built or were a part of the events in history? Our numbers will decline for a few years, and then our species will expand again, infused by that mutifying effect called New Orleans. They just can’t keep a good thing down.

Sinn Fein!
