http://www.seattlepi.com/artandlife/1404ap_eu_britain_us_embassy.html?source=rss The U.S. decided it needed a new embassy in London. Guess the old one wasnt fashionable enough. How much is this embassy? 1 billion dollars, making it one of the most expensive embassies ever built. I guess the recession is over if we can just start building new embassies. I dont know what was wrong with the old one. It was working fine for the least 200 years. But hey...at least they are going green with it...oh wait...its being built in england,so I guess our countrys air and energy usuage will not benefit from it.
