Look at empty block





    Eleven years of planning with community input, $3 million of taxpayer money, and now in the final hour the General Services Administration is being told that its Moss Courthouse expansion plan needs to be overhauled.
    It is difficult for me to understand how more streetscape for the federal courthouse would prevent an Oklahoma City-style bombing or a 9-11 airplane attack. I also fail to see how sniping can be prevented when you are building a structure in the middle of a city surrounded by taller buildings.
    Moving Oddfellows Hall and destroying the lively Shubrick is pure folly when you consider the ongoing preservation of an empty lot across the street. If the judges need their own block, then they should take it from Earl Holding, and cease amputations in an already terminally ill downtown.
