I am across Harlem, but I am concerned about Oak Park development. I wonder if anyone remembers a cute movie The Gods Must Be Crazy. Oak Park’s board must be trying to do a new version: The Trustees Must Be Crazy. Or is it me who is crazy? The Colt building is an ugly eyesore, even if it is historic. It has served no useful purpose for a long time and spending $6 million to rehab it will not change its looks nor its utility. I wish Daley were here, for tomorrow morning it would be gone and the silly argument could be over.
