What Twisted People We Are

“What twisted people we are. How simple we seem, or at least pretend to be in front of others, and how twisted we are deep down. How paltry we are and how spectacularly we contort ourselves before our own eyes, and the eyes of others…And all for what? To hide what? To make people believe what?”

― Roberto Bolaño

Leaning Tower of Dallas, Dallas, Texas

The saga which is the Leaning Tower of Dallas continues. Today, we were promised that a wrecking ball would bring it down for good. What actually appeared looked awfully tiny against the tilted mountain of concrete. It didn’t seem to do any more damage than a tickle.

Everyone in town is posing with the leaning tower in a variety of poses to appear with the tower in a selfie.

When I stopped by myself – I enjoyed the scene of people posing. If you take the tower out of the picture – everything is even more amusing.

  1. I’d caught a photo of the building somewhere, and assumed it wouldn’t take more than a hot minute to get the thing down. This is hilarious. “The Building That Wouldn’t Die” combined with all those photo takers is great.

    • It’s made quite an impression on the city. Some people are calling for a monument to be built. It is a lot larger than it looks in the photos and is very obvious when you drive down the highway.
