Nice article. Thanks for posting the link and kudos to the RepAm for spending their own money to restore such an important landmark.

Also laudable: they didn't hide this article behind a paywall as they do most other content!

Yea,but they want to bury you in ads,if you are running an ad blocker,they throw up another wall asking you to dump the blocker.
With 25 ads waiting to drown your computer.
Washington Post pulls the same stunt as well! :(

Yep, noticed that too.

That said, my opinion of them has improved because of this undertaking though!

It could also be that having so laudably financed the restoration they don't want to hide their light under a bushel--or behind a wall.
