phallus of learning

i forgot to tell yvonne that the HPS offices in Pittsburgh that I will be visiting are in the 10th floor of the "cathedral of learning", the gigantic phallus in the middle of the U Pitt campus with themed classrooms that she told me about when she went to a conference there. I'll definitely have to make a replica.

Comments:
That building is crazy. I took a cab ride with a driver who was born and raised in Pittsburgh and he told me the whole history. If you look at the building you can see about halfway up where they stopped and re-started building it again because they ran out of money during the Depression.

You can see a picture of it here: http://www.umc.pitt.edu:16080/tour/images/bigphotots/photo-tour-080-big.jpg
