The Walls Come Tumbling Down

A stretch of the wall of the old Roman Forum connecting it with the Colosseum has collapsed, according to CBC News .

Does it not seem ominous that this great symbol of the ancient Roman Empire is collapsing while her successor European civilization is itself collapsing before the onslaught of different barbarians?

That is really sad. Does it mean that the Italians are not keep up their ancient landmarks like they should? The Colosseum has been in pretty rough condition for a long time...maybe this will give them the impetus to do something about it.
