Public outrage stops the Renaissance Plan…for now

There is at last some reason to celebrate in Santa Ana. Our writers have hinted recently that the ill-conceived Renaissance Plan has been suspended while city planners try to do what so many in the public have been asking them to do. Fix it.

Now our friend Steven Greenhut, over at the O.C. Register, has weighed in with his take on the halting of the Renaissance Plan and the implications of this development. His editorial is written beautifully in layers, such that I cannot excerpt it without taking away some of its meaning. So here it is in its entirety:

George Washington Carver, the former slave who developed multiple uses for the peanut as a way to alleviate poverty in the rural South, liked to relay this story: “I went into my laboratory and said ‘Dear Mr. Creator, please tell me what the universe was made for?’ The Creator answered, ‘You want to know too much for that little mind of yours. Ask for something more your size.’
