Best of the Web – Day 4
Hop into my yellow and black taxi cab as we cruise the web and find the most meaningful, fun, silly, provocative or useful articles from the globe! So click and come along for the ride!
India seems to have a lot of money to spare – building the world’s tallest statue with a price tag of $340 million!
Statues are inert, without life, without blood. No matter how tall they are, no matter how big a tourist attraction they are, or how grand a political statement they make.
Wouldn’t Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s memory be honored by educating the youth of the country? How about scholarships in his name, new institutions of higher learning?
Would not making the lives of living people easier be a true tribute? Better homes, better toilets, more drinking water, an India that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel could be proud of.
What do you think $340 million should be used for?
