In this morning's Spec, Dreschel calls for a white knight to ante up the $2.5 million extra for limestone.

Nice to see he's on the side of the architectural angels, but his plea strikes me as the continuation of a practice that has put local power into the hands of a small group of wealthy and overly-influential "community leaders" for as long as I've lived in this town, which is more than half a century. If I had a nickel for every time I've read a variation of the word "leader" in The Spec, I'd be almost as rich as if I had a nickel for every time I've read about Hamilton's "potential".

Needless to say, I'm not rich. But I would be willing to put up $10 (500,000 citizens @ $5 ea.) for limestone cladding on city hall, were someone to take up a collection. Hell, I'd be willing put in another $10 to cover the share of WRCU2 above, and a locally-based partner she/he may have, real or fancied.
