That's just terrible. We've seen the ruins in Belize and Mexico and they are very interesting. What did the contractor have to say other than "oops"?
Now we'll never get all of the calendar years!
I wonder if the Mayan calendar knew this was going to happen.
Find anything of value or was the heist of contents "unreported"?
They should force the contractor to rebuild it so it's as good as new.
It was on private land, so the owner was able to sell it off as he desired. Hope he enjoys the new car he got from it...
Aw man. I was planning to visit the site on my next cruise. What a bummer!
The antiquities that are being destroyed just sickens me. This one rates right up there with the Taliban using the giant Buddhas for target practice. The depraved indifference of these people just makes me want to shake them and scream "What is wrong with you?"
Another reminder of just how stupid humans really are.
Let the private sector work. If people don't like what this contractor has done, they can choose to not use their roads. That's how the private sector works. Government is already too big. They shouldn't be telling anyone what pyramids can or can't be used for. That's tyranny.
