To the Editor:
Thank you Stephanie Franklin for your careful documentation of the deceitful behavior of the University of Chicago in attempting to force the use of precious public parkland instead of privately held acreage in its bid for the Obama Presidential Library. (“Case never made for need for park land for Obama Library,” Jan. 28, 2015)
As Franklin pointed out (and it bears repeating) “Wanting the library in the Washington Park neighborhood is definitely NOT the same as wanting to take public land to bring it here.”
If there were a Nobel Prize for selfish, the University of Chicago would surely win it to add to its roster of laureates.
