In honor of our guest, we're posting a short letter sent to the Herald on Wednesday, August 1, the very afternoon of the 31st edition. As it was not printed this week, for some odd reason, we share it with our readers here:
Mr. Hans Morsbach's recent, all-too-brief letter of 1,232 words (Hyde Park Herald, August 1, 2007) made many points of principle regarding the proposed redevelopment of the vacant Dr.'s Hospital building.
Not mentioned is the fact that opposition to the hotel, which will include two restaurants for Hyde Parkers to take their families out on Friday and Saturday nights, is being led by the owner of a restaurant where Hyde Parkers take their families out on Friday and Saturday nights.
This might explain the writer's suggestion that the hotel and restaurants be located at 61st and Cottage Grove.
In some places, competition gives neighborhood folks more choice. This sounds more like a plan for "all you can squeeze."
