west view
The protection of the clay cliffs is strictly enforced. A uniformed police officer frequently patrols the beach on ATV, handing out $50 fines for tampering with the clay or engaging in any other illegal activities. Under Massachusetts General Law Ch 272 Sec 59, a person may be arrested for disturbing the clay. The cliffs are also frequently patrolled by a member of the Wampanoag tribe, who explains to visitors about the importance of the cliffs to the tribe. The cliffs feature prominently in Wampanoag spirituality and myths.–Wikipedia

Arkansas Capital building
The Arkansas State Capitol was constructed between 1899 and 1915 on the site of the old state penitentiary using prison labor. These buildings, when, where and how they were built cause discomfort among some. Should they be removed?

Your ability to create places that are meaningful and places of quality and character depends entirely on your ability to define space with buildings, and to employ the vocabularies, grammars, syntaxes, rhythms and patterns of architecture in order to inform us who we are.—Jim Kunstler
