4-The Assyrians have conquered Los Angeles!
As I was driving back from Orange County last year, my wife and I took a different freeway, I-5 and I passed this shopping outlet called "The Citadel". I had seen it years before but it has gone through some major renovations. As I drove past on the freeway it reminded me of the "8 Charactestics of Civilization"... remember #1) Cities, and walled cities at that. Well, this mall sure looks like Ninveh, the capital city of the Assyrian Empire (expect of course the ad for Super Loto!)
Here is a link to the history of this interesting mall and I've attached the photos I took while driving past.
