Je Suis Charlie

There was a recent episode of America Unearthed on three of the obelisks of Manhattan (possibly) placed in the shape of Orion's belt stars and pointing to the Statue of Liberty as Orion's Belt does to the star Sirius. It's a very crude and kluged alignment, but probably held some significance to the "architects." The below reviewer is not impressed:

A better program on the symbolism of the Statue of Liberty was done by Brad Meltzer:

See video

There are also other (much bigger and more modern) references to Orion in the Manhattan landscape:

Anyway, this seemed like an appropriate topic in light of recent events. Those of us that live on the Internet take "freedom of speech" for granted. But, we should be mindful that there are billions of people in the world that don't have that privilege.

...why should the reviewer care? Seriously, I'm asking a serious question. They are on the same network and have the same company producing them. I've seen both episodes and while I don't think the obelisk episode was the best of Scott Walter, it wasn't awful. I like Brad's new show on lost items more than his previous work personally, less pandering to the viewer who wants to bag on secret societies and less Alex Jones...who got Brad's team arrested for trespassing. Every season of History channel shows has at least one episode of secret societies up to no good for ratings alone if nothing else. Sad really.

Brad Meltzer stated that he believes aliens were responsible for the Malaysia flight disappearance...just throwing that out there to keep on the subject of tragedy.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................
