ArienC, the reason there aren't crafstmen like there were back in the day today is because there's no demand for them. The same potential is available today as was back then. Today's craftsmen don't have the same attitude and work ethic back then not because they can't but because it's not demanded of them or even expected from them like it was back then. I know quite a few people who can do just as great a job today as they did back in the day.

It's a plain disgrace for people to be allowed to purchase property and let it sit doing nothing but falling apart without doing anything about it. It would be a disgrace for that to happen under normal circumstances but it's even worse when the property involved has historical significance.

What can we do? How about looking around the city at all the historical properties that need to stay, making a list and then doing our level best to ensure that those properties aren't neglected? Be the proverbial mosquito in Marini's ear. Hold him accountable. That's up to us, isn't it?
