I recommend people attend the Historic Resources Board meeting tomorrow morning Wednesday Oct. 5 at 8 a.m. to speak to the issue of the value of the Varsity Theatre as a cultural asset and against the plan of the owner who wants to turn it into office space.

How are people supposed to attend a meeting of such importance, with short notice and at a time when they must be at work?

Not blaming you, Mark; blaming the city for potentially ramming the further destruction of the Varsity through without adequate public awareness and discussion.

Frankly, the City of Palo Alto appears to be corrupt, and the response to developers' requests to leap, in recent years, has merely been "how high?" So-called planning in this town consists of laundering developers' wishes via a bevy of commissions and boards which, conveniently, are less than politically accountable.
