And to everyone's surprise. . . . .




. . . . .it turns out that the old cathedral can be repaired and made earthquake-safe. This morning's Times has the story of the continuing restoration of old St Vibiana's here. The picture shows the cupola being replaced. Except now it's not to be a Cathedral. Or even a church. I think the phrase is "community center" or some such.

I guess the safety of local Catholics didn't require a new $65 million dollar. . .uh, "structure". . . on Temple street after all.
