Neil Cavuto shut down Bill Donohue. Donohue tried to mention the churches being desecrated and Neil said,we're not discussing.

Une bonne nouvelle : toutes les œuvres d’art ont été sauvées. Le trésor de la cathédrale est intact, la couronne d’épines, les saints sacrements. #NOTRE_DAME

MM "A priest from Notre Dame Cathedral reports that all the art work and the holy relics contained in the cathedral has been saved."

HUGE if true. "All" is simply hard to believe, impossible actually, since some of the most important art was the windows themselves.

The daughter gave me a lovely large Rose Window sun catcher from her trip to Paris. It is hanging in a window at the cabin and catches the afternoon sun.

jimmyk

A good friend of mine e-mailed me from Paris. I knew he was in Europe, and his itinerary included Paris, but he just e-mailed me:

Tough evening in Paris with Notre Dame burning. Visited it and went up in tower in the morning, but decided to try a later day to go in, as line was kind of long. We actually were sitting atop the Mondern Art Museum, facing Notre Dame as the smoke started then the flames--very sad. Too good of a view of it!

He's Catholic, incidentally.

If Trump hadn't used his fascist powers to deny Aerial fire fighting helicopters to France, we would not be having this conversation.

Just watch. Someone somewhere will find something in the internet of all things that point in his direction. I call it the news from the deranged.

Too bad your friend missed the inside.

Happy Birthday to Clarice’s mom.
100 years old!
Wow ,what great genes.

JM Hanes

Miss Marple:

Google translates the relevant part:

A Finn next to Notre Dame heard two explosions and saw the cathedral in fire: "This is a historic event"

Mika Laakkonen, a university professor opposite Notre Dame, has followed the fire of the historic cathedral from the headquarters. Laakkonen from Oulu says she was on the couch when there were two bangs.

- I got up and went to see. The big tower in the middle of Notre Dame came on fire, he says.

I wouldn't attach too much significance to the explosions or bangs. There are bound to be a lot of them as supports snap, elements collapse and heavy objects crash down.

JM Hanes

Congratulations and Happy B'day to Clarice's mom! Is she doing keto? :-)

Poor planning by the safety and security services including the highest echelons of the federal and city governments.

The same bureaucracy probably still hasn't put guardrails in front of the tunnel pillars that killed Princess Di. American engineers & lawyers would have prevented it from being built that way, but the French don't like the look.

It started at 11:30 EDT, right? Which is 17:30 local time in France, right?

Kind of a sad commentary on the state of Catholicism in France. In the US a major church would have multiple weekday masses, and probably one in the evening and it would have had people there.

Beasts of England

Wasn't Weld on the Libertarian ticket in 2016? And I think Kristol (spit) is counting on Kasich (spit) to run this time.

Old Lurker

Many construction related fires reveal themselves at night or early evening after the work has stopped for the day. Workers sometimes forget that the heat from their torch is penetrating the surface they are/were working on and might get something smoldering that they don't see at the time. Ditto an electrical short. Ditto bottled propane which might not have be tightly turned off. So many possibilities.

In the old days, construction sites used roving "fire watchers" who made the rounds at night just like the security guards. The vintage "night watchman" was looking and sniffing for smoke just as much as bad guys.

Buckeye

Watching Fox.

Donna Brazile isn't nearly as stupid as Juan, but at least twice as annoying.

Dave (in MA)

BoE, Weld was the drunk VP candidate to the guy who was too baked to know what Aleppo was (while Syria was in the top headlines).

Beasts of England

Thanks, Dave!! I just read that Weld endorsed Obama over McCain in 2008! He sounds like a fun guy... ;)

The only good Weld was Tuesday.

Jack is Back!

I know Bill Weld from my Central Artery days. Yes, Dave, you can blame me for it:)

Most unserious politician and executive I ever met. He really didn't want to know anything about it even the good, bad or ugly. Have no idea what was on his mind, possibly porn he was missing.

So true, Jane. He would have been the perfect ereJOM correspondent if he was there and on his watch:) Macron says they will rebuild. Duh? Who would think they wouldn't.

Still, say Eric Trump should put in a proposal just for the cranium explosion event.

Jane

Maria Bartoroma is pretty good JIB (even if I can't spell her name) and I really like Tucker.

Extraneus

Fine for us here, but I think they were right to cut off the speculation on Fox. It's a bad look, especially when you're trying to report the actual news. Even worse if it turns out there was an innocent cause.

GUS

right EXT, that's why they breathlessly told us about TRUMPS' COLLUSION with RUSSIA. I guess they've gone back to pre-Walter Cronkite reportage.

Extraneus

Was Fox real big on the collusion hoax?

Jack is Back!

Jane,

Agree about Maria and Tucker. Don't know why I missed them.

Ext, never stopped the nets speculating about Trump's election thanks to the Russians. Speculating for me but not for thee.

This woman on FOX was just telling about seeing the first plumes of smoke. She said the smoke was green. That could only be caused by chemicals I would think!

Ext,

The people I watch seemed pretty "fair and balanced" about the Russian hoax. Of the people I watch, no one ever assumed it was true, and frankly no one talked about it much, waiting for the report.

lou Dobbs at 7 on Fox Biz and Tucker at 8 are my favorites, altho I try to watch Brett as well, who I don't hate like others here.

Bernie Sanders is on the last half of Brett's show and already acting like a complete ass,

JM Hanes

"Also the church was also closed at the time of the fire. So nothing was going on the church."

Perhaps there were no services going on, but one of the people interviewed on CBS live coverage described being in the church with other people who left, or were evacuated, once the fire made its presence known. Perhaps it was closed at the time the fire is believed to have taken hold? Or perhaps it was closed to the public because of the construction work. I could have misunderstood, but I don't think it's correct that the church was empty at the time.

GUS

Was ShepTard big on the RUSSIAN COLLUSION??

Bernie is a very angry man. 1st question: The definition of socialism is "equality for all". What about that do you disagree Bernie?

Spoke to my sister today. She was doubly hit by Notre Dame because she and her late husband were to go to Paris this summer.

She is also upset because he did all of the money and she didn't pay enough attention. He thought stocks and such were FUN and she just let him handle it. Now she doesn't know what to do. She said she would call and get a financial adviser after the funeral.

Made me realize I need to make a cheat sheet for my daughter in case something hapens to me.

Explosions could be the Acetylene and Oxygen tanks used by the demolition crew. But could also be IED placed by the anti-Christian, anti-Western civilization Muzzies.

I still go for the latter. I know them.

While Notre Dame burned, the Al Aqsa Mosque - a thousand years old and one of Islam's holiest sites - also caught fire.

It's been contained but the parallel is eerie.

I saw that hit. It was brutal. I’m surprised he only got 5 games. The talking heads figured he’d get 10 since he’s a repeat offender. I haven’t checked yet, but be interested to see if Joe Thornton gets any days off for “accidentally” making contact with a Vegas player’s dome. He got 2 in the sin bin for the bad contact.
