I like your analogy, but the fear of mine and many local residents is that dinner will never get served. I don't think a chocolate bar is better then a steak, but I do think a chocolate bar is better than nothing at all.

Futhermore, if you subscribe to the "Broken Glass" theory mentioned in Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point, you'll see that the simple demolition of The Lister Block will dramatically decrease crime in the downtown core. I know that I could do without people peeing outside my window and breaking into my car to steal a couple dollars.
