Actually, You Haven't Woke Up

The Historic Foundation, as the article states, can only delay the redevelopment process to where a second look can be given to destroying these structures. Russia? I think not. Looks like a good 'ol democracy at work to me. Could this not be applying a little (ahem) common sense? I myself much prefer the elegance and charm that old Southern cities, who have developed wisely, have to offer. Let's not forget the tourist dollar that is brought in by keeping these old structures in place. Who in their right mind would want to tour downtown Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati, Detroit, Buffalo, Baltimore... Charleston, Savannah are much better tourist destinations because of their proximity to beaches and charming downtown areas. Let's bring the tourists to OUR beaches and downtown. There are plenty of other places prime for development of business and industry in our area without hurting the almighty dollar. The Taste of Country home would make a nice bed and breakfast or even a residential home. You claim in previous blogs that you have adapted to Southern culture but you seemed to have missed the point here and with the ABC warehouse issue too.
