Crane collapses at Washington National Cathedral

A crane has collapsed at the National Cathedral, falling in two different buildings on the grounds and crushing several vehicles.

The 500-foot crane, erected after a 5.8 earthquake damaged the cathedral, partially fell on Herb Cottage, which houses the cathedral gift shop.

The gift shop was temporarily closed following last month’s temblor.

    One wonders if lightning is next, or perhaps will God skip that and have the ground open up and swallow the place whole?

    Hmmm … not particularly charitable.

    Cranes do collapse…..almost always as a result of faulty design.
