To the Editor,
Mr. Silverstein, why are you going out of your way to be greatly disliked? Why?
Restore your investment and frame up the interior, so that when you win your case, you need only do a minor adjustment. This town has enough problems without ugly buildings that need love.
Keep in mind that you could sell to get out of the controversy. For in the end, no reasonable person will want to rent because your contoversy will tarnish any negotiations you may enter in.
