L-C Proved Right at Last

With so much land under so much water, you can at least think of Le Corbusier as proved correct. One of the reasons he gives for building above the ground (in The Radiant City) is that he was appalled that France was one of the last counties to still allow the laying of parquet flooring on bare ground, which was clearly unsanitary and damp! Note he is proved correct in principle, not in effect.
Meanwhile I learn today that one in three families own a copy of Queen's Greatest Hits, and that demonstrates the paucity of the market economy better than anything else I can think of.
