I am not so sure. If people wish to spend their money restoring this building they have every right to do so. Some months ago I was looking at a site which essentially pointed out that French governments efforts to preserve this structure were completely inadequate and a lot more money would be needed to do this job properly. I for one am pleased that a lot of people are stepping up to preserve an important part of their history and by extension ours. Benjamin Franklin once said that every man it a citizen of two countries their own and France. I believe him to be correct.
