Shard London Bridge May 2012

Fr Ray Blake has a post offering food for thought in comparing pictures of the new Shard in London to the Tower of Babel. I was actually there just yesterday (the Shard, not the Tower of Babel) since the Jubilee line was suspended for a bit. I popped out of London Bridge Station for a breath of fresh air and realised that the exit I used was just along from the new building.

A local cabbie who happened also to be a historian of twentieth century neo-modernism told me that there was a wonky theologian roped to the top of that building. He is called "Tied Hard to Shard End."
