To date this is only this blogger's opinion, but:

History Buried in the Rubble: Cologne Archive Building Collapses - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

The building housing Cologne's municipal archive collapsed on Tuesday, bringing parts of some surrounding structures down with it. At least two people are missing. Some of the documents housed in the archive date back to the year 922.

Need I say more? (I could though, believe me...)

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
