    Yesterday I heard an interview with one of the members of the Untergunther that spent a year of his free time fixing the clock at the Pantheon in secret. He told the interviewer that the current administration at the Pantheon has decided not to wind the clock every week to keep it working. This decision to not have the clock working did not bother the ‘undercover restorer’ and he went on to say that he is happy to know that he fixed the clock and that the clock is really working. That part of the story really warms my heart and puts a smile on my face.

    fabulous story – it is fun to think about covert projects going on like that in Paris (or anywhere) for the good of things. And so well done!

    it would seem to me that this is an example of what the world needs to do as a whole. we need to come together and do what’s right.
