"This is the most opaque regime that is a nuclear weapons state, and now they have a leadership vacuum in which a kid is basically trying to run the country," Cha said. "So it's not a good situation at all."

Re: Another theory nobody wants to touch with a hundred foot pole
I suppose it could have been deliberate. God knows that there are plenty of reasons to be disgruntled with the Catholics but Notre Dame is not one of them. If it was deliberate we can be sure that a religious zealot was involved.
I had the same thought and it is not a total loss but tragic nonetheless. Kind of like that Greek dudes ship with the repaired planks and nothing is really what it was yesterday anyway except maybe things like an indomitable spirit.
