Re: “The tax day open line

Watching Mayor Pete right now.

There is something about listening to him that makes me feel very calm and hopeful.

Re: “Notre Dame Cathedral burns

From USA Today:

"Tweeting that it was "so horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris," Trump added: "Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!"

Professional firefighters called Trump's proposal impractical at best. Deploying the kinds of airplanes used to fight forest fires would be dangerous in an urban area, they said, noting that force of the water could knock the building down and threaten firefighters on the ground.

"The drop of water by air on this type of building could indeed result in the collapse of the entire structure," a French security agency tweeted."

Re: “Notre Dame Cathedral burns

This was the first place we visited on our first trip to Paris. Beautiful beyond words.

We have been watching coverage on French television (France 24). Several times multiple commentators have mentioned that French firefighters and experts have said that Trump's tweeted advice that water should be dropped from helicopters was a terrible suggestion (one called it stupid) because it would have collapsed the entire structure.
