Why So High?

Gossips' curiosity was piqued again this morning by the tall boom of a giant crane towering over the neighborhood around the courthouse. The building under construction is two stories high. Why is such an enormous crane required?


  1. Maybe it requires a big pendulum to knock out those interior walls?

    Oh, don't people realize what's being done inside?

    The important thing, as always, is that someone else made these decisions for us.

  2. The crane has to be tall enough so that what is being lifted can pass over to wherever the lifted thing will be set down.

  3. Nah. All wrong. It's a sky hook.
