Yesterday on the train I was watching the world go by and I noticed bricks, millions of them.  So many buildings around New York City were built out of those oblong objects.  Just think, hands carefully placed each one.  Where are all those bricklayers now?

I did some research and found that bricks have been used since 7500 BC.  New buildings appear to be mostly made of prefabricated materials.  I wonder how many people know how to lay bricks?  Is it a dying art?  I hope not.
