Bet on the sure thing: Q-C Habitat for Humanity -QCTimes Editorial
I find it strange that the Times picks this issue to really take Alderman Meyer to task, but you never know what side they're going to take. The editorial never once mentions the fact that if Habitat built houses that look like this image I stole from Alderman Frink's blog of a new old-looking house, a lot fewer people would be resisting. Instead they build houses that would be the worst in almost any neighborhood in town, much less semi-historic ones.
I would also buy their arguments against renovation a lot more if they didn't own a store full of old house parts.
