To the Editor:
Though I want the Obama Library to be on the South Side, I definitely do not accept placing it on park property. Park property is sacrosanct. Park property is for the people of Chicago to use unimpeded by any person who is to be honored. I do not care if it is George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Martin Luther King or personalities of our religions such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Mohammed or the Buddha. Or for that matter any of our numerous great foremothers and forefathers of any religion or race.
That land needs to remain open, and unobstructed by man-made buildings. President Barack Obama is indeed a great person who is remarkable for what he has accomplished. In one of his better moments he would agree with me.
