My recent column on the proposed demolition of Ronald Reagan’s Chicago home and the possibility of the site being used as a parking lot for Obama’s future library has caused a national media firestorm – and I’m glad.
Reagan would have turned 102 this week and I cannot think of a more fitting tribute to one of our greatest presidents than to bring national attention to the fight to save his only Chicago home. To remind us how great “the Gipper” truly was and how much we miss him in our lives. No President that great should be so casually cast aside as he is being in the city of Chicago.
I proudly stand by my column and my right to tell “the other side of the story.” The side of the story that the mainstream media doesn’t tell. The real people side of the story.
For weeks prior to the column, area residents, business owners, and building activists have been contacting me, worried and upset that the University of Chicago was planning to bulldoze Reagan’s only Chicago home, the apartment building at 832 E. 57th St., to build a parking lot.
