Great job w/ Soldier Field column

Chicago Friday 8/31/2001 1030

David Greising, Chicago Tribune

Mr. Greising:

Thanks so much for your column of Wednesday, August29, 2001,"Soldier Field in need of civic intervention". It'seven better than Blair Kamin's. Your two-worddescription of the Bears/Soldier Field monstrosity("disastrous decision") is the best I've seen.

Wasn't the main reason for subjecting the ParkDistrict to state legislative oversight in 1934 was tominimize local political mistakes in managingChicago's park system? And now the Legislature can'twait to jump on the worst parks decision since 1934.

I just hope your column can help fix things beforeit's too late.
