Sam Hall Kaplan's column on Pershing Square made us angry. How could the city turn this historic open space over to a small, obviously self-interested group? And to spend $1.6 million, too! Who are these people? And what do they want to do?
Kaplan is providing a real service to the city by keeping an eye on these people. I don't want to come downtown some day and find Pershing Square gone, or buried under a lot of tents and flags or surrounded by barbed wire, like last year.
