Well, the tower is not ADA-accessible, even if it's a ramp. The stairs would test the faithful, though. Presumably, that's an important church on top. The discontinuity in the line of the stairs is odd. I wonder why it was drawn that way?

You're right--45% does not a good ramp make, unless you wanted to go really fast going down. I guess too that it *is* an important something, some religious communicator, up there on top, otherwise what a disappointment it would be! I guess it was drawn this way because (a) it looked pretty, (b) almost no one would look at the drawing as hard as Jeff, and (c or 3)there were 270-odd more to do. Plus, its the Tower of Babel--what would it have been like, like, if the thing made sense?
