we need a vibrant lowrise area downtown for clubs and restaurants. We don't need 20 more glass encased parking garage bases that are dead at 930 pm
Chicago just really needs to ban the parking garage bases.

If that means new housing is much more expensive, so be it. If that means there is much less new development of any kind, so be it. But they are ruining parts of the city.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
