Save the 500

I think the redevelopment of the 500 block of State Street is a great idea ("'Pricing Us Out of the Market,'" 5/3/2013). I feel Madison needs more McDonald's, Subways and Burger Kings. Upscale student housing should be a priority. Best of all, my wife and I can save a lot of gas money spent driving from our farm nine miles south of Blue Mounds to eat at Kabul, Buraka and Husnu's.

Seriously, if Paul Soglin really thinks this is a good idea, then he is more out of touch than I thought. Ever since we came out here to go to school in the late '50s, that block has always been a moneymaker for the city's tax rolls.
