'Hood's been hot for a while

What an odd collection of misinformation and misinterpretation appeared in John Easton's "Here Goes the Neighborhood" (June/00).

Hyde Park has been a strong market for about a generation--he has to watch his time slots. It is even better today but that is largely the economy, not [U of C vice president for community affairs] Hank Webber "saving" it. The article, in fact, sounds like the typical Highland Parker's idiotic idea that any place south of McCormick Place is the abomination of desolation. Please give a little credit to those of us who've lived here for years and knew a good thing--and had it, too. We "turned the corner" by the mid-60s and have never looked back.
