Prurient Preservation

Left: A Quonset hut at Pier 66. Some morons wish to suck more blood from the body politic to have this disposable structure preserved (Word Document).

Today's Chronicle has a story about preservationists out of control again. Fortunately, the object of the fetishists is an earthquake shack, so it could be moved to the Zoo. But not before the owner had to pay thousands of dollars to determine exactly what kind of earthquake shack it was.

This is sadly reminiscent of the recent attempt by some to preserve Quonset Huts in the Mission and Bayview. Next they'll be filing suit to save Conex Boxes at former mini-storage sites.

Discuss it here.
