[vcf-midatlantic] I made a mistake

I think the miss here is not the act but the haste. I can think of 2 or 3 alternatives that would also satisfy the liability concerns and would not have jeopardized the piece. (For the record, I am not the person who complained, and I am somewhat ambivalent on the specifics).
It may be that the chosen approach was best but a bit more time to weigh the options would not have hurt. (Obviously, one can also over analyze and/or engage in groupthink, but I am not suggesting either)
So, if the outcome is to pause anytime modification is considered, I think the best has occurred.

doesn't hurt the historic value, there will be an informational poster
covering most of it, which in my opinion would be a permanent addition to
it, and to Dan's point, an earthquake wouldn't take it down, limiting
liability as well potential damage to anything underneath it.
