How Can it Be Cracked?
Given my very limited understanding of engineering, I will grant you that I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.
There is a crack in the Washington Monument,
and yet, I thought the monument was
assembled by stacked pieces of granite
and that no mortar was used. If there is a crack, then does that mean that the original granite bricks have cracked or that there is a separation between the pieces (which, as I said, are not connected by mortar)?
I hope they can get it repaired soon.
