What a wonderful commentary by Robert Herold. Thoughtful and insightful. UW is a respectful outsider in our community and in Tacoma. Walk the Tacoma campus and you´ll understand what vision and care can do. Our community should choose what we want in OUR community. Why should we let outsiders come in and tell us like little children that our historic buildings mean nothing? To them, maybe they don´t. But those historic buildings are OUR history. DDC - is that your only argument? It´s lame. Essentially the point you´re making is to let anyone with the money make the decisions...FOR us. Is that what we want? To bow down before the almighty dollar carrier and say, "Do what you want in our town, cuz we don´t really care. As long as you´ve got the cash." Pathetic. We are in the position of power but don´t know it. We can stand up for OUR vision of OUR town and if money-players want to come here, they need to do it OUR way.
