Apparently Post Dispatch writer Paul Hampel really likes his parking spaces. At least that’s what his article in today’s paper leads me to believe. One would think that Montgomery Bank building a 120,000 sq ft mixed-use development in downtown Clayton would be a positive thing. But all Mr. Hampel seems to care about is that the project will displace his favorite parking lot. That’s all his 596 word, joke of an article, focuses on. Am I the only one that find such short-sighted blabber ridiculous? I wish we had a true alternative newspaper in this town. Its thinking like this that’s going to keep our area from ever making real progress.
