I am so disappointed, disgusted and angry that money can buy the City Council, can buy Iowa City.

Tell me one good thing about The Chauncey, because I cannot come up with anything. A 20-story building seems a disaster from start to finish, and wherever will all the cars park Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp is already nearly filled, day and night.

And who cares about a bowling alley? Movie theaters in downtown have failed repeatedly.

All I can think is that Marc Moen gets what he wants because he has the money and apparently the University of Iowa dominates decisions as well.

And where will New Pi go? Will big chain Whole Foods move in and overshadow independent New Pi? What about quality of life? Have we any recourse?
