Reenactment, in the philosophy of history sense of the word, is certainly an excellent mnemonic device.

The Beginning of a Semester, or Some Meditations on...
Enrique, my mother was working as cook at the Baron von Ow villa in Harlaching when the Allies first bombed Munich. Harlaching, a wealthy neighborhood, seemed to be one of the targets, maybe because Rudolph Hess's (empty?) villa was just around the corner from the von Ow's. January two years ago I asked my mother to tell me all about the experience. Franziska Baroness von Ow, the daughter and youngest son, the upstairs maid and my mother huddled in the basement, while Konrad Baron von Ow and the two older sons were outside--did the Baron maybe have a rifle with him? One of the houses down the street toward Theodelinden Platz was badly hit. My mother remembers carrying blankets for the Baroness as they, and the whole neighborhood actually, went down to aid the victims.

Brussels and Belgium: what to see?
There was a nice buffet style restaurant in the top sphere of the Atomium in 1999. Maybe it's still there.
There's an 'old world' marketplace in the neighborhood 'down the hill' from the Palais de Justice. And apparantly there are (throughout the city?) a variety of non-Art Nouveu buildings by Horta--I saw one in passing (between the Cathedral and the Grand Place) that was like pseudo-fascist Pleknik or something, kind of haunting.

Sam Lubell examines the U.S.'s trouble keeping top design talent
Architectural history has a very interesting and very diverse timeline when you strictly follow chronological order. Take a look at just a small sampling of the architectural diversity of the 20th century in chronological order, for example, 1924, 1926, 1932, 1939. The notion that one architectural style/attitude dominates or is better than another (coexisting) style or is best suited to its time is really only artificial historiography. The real fact is that architectural history (on a strictly chronological and global scale) is extremely diverse and always has been. Thus, it's fairly certain that the 21st century is going to turn out being extremely diverse architecturally as well, and it might just help for all architects and historians to just generally realize that fact.
