A Saudi prince is planning on building a skyscraper that will be a mile high, twice the height of the tallest buildings today. I wonder how big the Tower of Babel was going to be.

I watched an hour long special on Dubai recently where they of course talked about this tower. This whole city is at once fascinating and scary. I must admit that The Tower of Babel crossed my mind, so did the Titanic. They interviewed the architect and others who were giving such a publicity pitch about how perfect the city is and how perfect the prince is that I it seemed very Stepford Wives like! It all sounded just a little too good.
