The opposition to the Edgewater was all about an eccentric millionaire who didn't want the view from his mansion obstructed.
It's really sad that he's still regurgitating the same talking point, like some kind of dutiful Republican apparatchik.
Right! And he's totally oversimplified the opposition.
It wasn't just a foot-stomping, save-the-view-from-my-house millionaire who fanned the flames. It was the batophobics, freaking out about the tower's imagined impact on a neighborhood they spend little time in, if any.
Thanks, jerks, for making it much more likely that I'll have the current shitbox Edgewater as a neighbor until it finally crumbles into dust.
