This insane comment from the property owner, Tim Clark of Zirkelbach Home Appliance, on the demolition of theatres in Clinton, Iowa:
“I think when we get done, people are going to be pleased with the appearance of it,â€ he said. â€œWe want to make it an example of how nice parking lots can look with landscaping.â€
I hope Mr. Clark isn’t planning anymore downtown beautification projects in other cities. Someone seems to still be living in the 1960’s.
