So today I saw a blog posting regarding some new attempt to come up with a “official” 7 Wonders of the World list. Apparently voting has been going on for a few years and was according to some a “worldwide” effort. What? You never heard of this effort? Neither had I. I guess they should rename it to the 7Wonders according to a few online users in a few select countries. That’s not to say I don’t agree with most of the choices. The Great Wall, Machu Picchu, Petra, and the Taj Mahal are certainly in that category. But the Christ Redeemer in Brazil? Is that a joke? Sure, its a neat tourist attraction, but Wonder of the World? More amazing than say Angkor Wat? Hardly.
