We voted for libraries to be renovated, rehabilitated and restored. We did not vote to demolish them," said Daniella Thompson of the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association. "The South branch is a beautiful building that has suffered over the years. But it should not be torn down" vs clueless City Councilperson Max Anderson's "The people voted for these libraries to be fixed up - they didn't vote to put restrictions on what can and can't be done with them," he said. "A handful of self-appointed preservationists are not going to stop the momentum of this project." Note to Max: Watch your back. All preservationists are self-appointed. [SFGate]
