Article; La seconde mort de Pompéi

A long article in Le Figaro on the whole collapse/state of Pompeii debate criticises the lack of conservation planning at Pompeii and praises the HCP efforts at Herculaneum.

There's also this article from Reuters which is far more annoying: Pompeii collapses spark worry and outrage. To be fair, the article makes some good points about the amount of money spent on spectacular tourist-drawing initiatives in the last two years - but this hardly adds up to 'years of neglect'.
