Future Site of Holy Cross
Comments: The fact that a handful of carpetbagger academics who have never lived near this neighborhood can bog down its renewal is preposterous. Go back to your insulated ivory tower and let the residents of this neighborhood decide their own future. The debatable architectural merits of this church do not outweigh Holy Cross' position in the historical fabric of this city; allowing it to prevent such a historic institution from reestablishing itself and revitalizing a neighborhood would be a burden this city cannot bear.
