This story about Cincinnati got national attention today:
The architect designing what could be Cincinnati’s tallest building wants to top it off with an arching crown inspired by Princess Diana.
And all I can think is: REALLY? Princess Diana? Am I the only one who doesn’t like this women? She embarrased the royal family and herself with her loveless, gold-digging marriage, her sleezy affairs and her horrible, horrible haircut! Yet everyone seems to love and adore her now that she’s dead. I don’t get it.
Anyway- the architect of the building in Cincinnati supposedly loved the idea of using her tiara on his building: “That’s perfect”, he said “Here we have the crown of the building, and the nickname for the city is Queen City.”
This is totally ridiculous for SO MANY REASONS but mainly because Diania was never the queen. She was the princess of wales. The idea might work if Cincinnati was the Pricess Of Wales city- but it’s not. It’s the Queen City.
But if you do want to use the whole Queen City thing as your motivation- then why not top the building with a replica of Freddie Mercury’s mustache…
Or the wart-covered nose of the evil queen from Snow White…
Anything would be better than Diana’s tiara.
