    Tasteless dictator's palace

    There was a discussion earlier about how tasteless a lot of modern Japanese architecture is. I got a real laugh about this article on the tastelessness of modern dictator's palaces. My favorite quote is a guy describing the interior of Ike Turner's mansion: "I didn't know you could spend a million dollars at Woolworths."

    Thank you, Mikecash, that is exactly the article I was trying to link, they seem to have moved it.

    For future reference, I found it by going to Google News and doing a search on "guardian" and "dictator".
