Thanks, Xpress, for a sparkling study of a debacle

I just read your fine, comprehensive article on the sordid history of our newly renovated Pack Square Park [“Debacle or Sparkle?” Aug. 25 Xpress] and wanted to congratulate you, without the usual sarcasm of letter writers to Mountain Xpress, on a well-researched and balanced piece of work.

Author [Michael] Muller kept a neutral tone and filled the piece with helpful, fact-based information. In today's dumbed-down world of Internet journalism and shout TV, I thank you for that!

Having watched costs multiply and timelines evaporate for years (with incredible patience from adjacent businesses), I love the new park as it is. Of course the absent restroom facilities and uncovered stage are minuses, but the artistic attention to detail throughout the park and it's overall tastefulness make it a jewel for Asheville to stand proud of.

I have heard nothing but kudos from my friends and neighbors.

    Oh, you’re just under under the spell of Asheville’s liberal allure…
