There is no God: The Walpole gets knocked down

I am not a pessimist but an indifferentist - that is, I don't make the mistake of thinking that the cosmos gives a damn one way or the the other about the especial wants and ultimate welfare of mosquitoes, rats, lice, dogs, men, horses, pterodactyls, trees, fungi, dodos, or other forms of biological energy.

The replacement looks like it should be a decent addition to the area, but why a handsome old building has to go, while the orange travesty next door remains, is something only Cthulu can explain.
