While the threat of oil drilling in the vicinity of Spiral Jetty continues, it turns out that Stonehenge is also under siege. The British daily The Guardian has this about plans to build a giant merchandise warehouse nearby, with a whole lot more truck traffic down the highway nearby. This following a decision by the British government a few months ago not to enclose the highway under a tunnel.
So much for one of the most ancient of ancient monuments. As the Guardian critic Jonathan Jones says:
“Come to think of it, why don’t we just get Banksy to decorate it?”
