Listening to Radio 4 and tidying the house and gently seething... There is a programme on about the military base that the US occupying troops have built on the archaeological ruins at Babylon... including a helipad and (why does this remind me of a song?) a parking lot. Oh and they used archaeological debris to fill the sandbags for their defences. Oh and scraped away the surface to lay a compacted (and chemically treated) gravel bed on which to build their station houses (or whatever the term is).

Gotta love 'em for their cultural sensitivity.

Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi (they paved paradise, put up a parking lot).
