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.
Keep an eye on Library Square too. And for that matter, all our parks and trees. Obviously, those who are suppose to be guarding them, the city, isn't.
