Thought of the Day #126 - Progress

I'm in Ogden today near about 100 homes which are abandoned and slated
for demolition. I'm torn between the idea that these little, old, often
delapitated homes should be left to find owners have love
again. With so many people not being able afford housing, little homes
like these could help a lot of people.

Then I think, yeah, these houses are long past their prime. Let them get
torn down and replaced by a huge development along this river. Put in a
giant parking lot, too.

I really don't know which side should win. It's a good thing I don't
work in city planning -- nothing would ever be decided.
