Wait… it took how long?

I don’t want to get off on a rant here…

So, I have a thing with construction projects. I think they are often given way too much leeway to impact the citizenry going about their daily lives. We are, in effect, mortgaging the present for a future that will never come. We have all of these construction projects that make getting around and living in the city harder and much less enjoyable. But by the time one has finished, two more have started, and there is no actual end in site.

This all came to mind because I just walked by one on Sunday night in Seattle. One that has been taking up an entire block of street parking for all fo their project related junk for I can’t remember how long. And I thought of that monstrosity as I learned that construction on the Empire State Building began in 1930 and was completed in 410 days!

So what the heck is going on with this thing? Your six story multi-use is somehow more complicated than the tallest building in the world built in 1930? Jeezopete!

Our photo today is an odd little collection of cylinders left over from making our asset tags. It has pretty much nothing to do with the Empire State Building. 🙂
