While I'll totally agree that facts and a good grasp of the issue, I certainly think terms like "mismanagement" and "chicanery" apply here. And if the issue was simply that the new market was smaller, I wouldn't be nearly so annoyed.

What really bothers me is that the City has used virtually every mention of the issue to take pot-shots at market vendors, talking about those nasty OFT vendors, as a smokescreen for their actual plans to chase people like Julia Serna out. Had they come to us with their hats in their hands saying 'sorry, we couldn't help it', I would have sympathy. But to constantly claim that they're doing this to promote more free choice? That's offensive.

Perhaps what frightens me most of all is that there's a very good chance nobody making these decisions had any clue that "the Columbian Coffee Woman" was one of the most popular people downtown.
