Save Juana Briones House/Home
Original post made by Anonymous, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 3, 2007
Just fiinished reading another article on this old home from
today's Mercury News, and wanted to let all of you know that
the present owners should not be alllowed to go ahead with their
plans to demolish this historical icon/landmark. I once believed that
people who spend so much money on homes ought to have more
freedom in this regard, but have had a change of heart, and have decided, along
with many of you wise folks, that this is not acceptable. Why the present owners
would ignore the public outcry against there plans to demolish is beyond me.
Do they want to be known as the ones who ignored the communities sentiments
and simply go ahead with their big plans? How can such selfish behavior exist
in this case? Why don't they read the writing on the wall, or atleast on paloalto online, and
get out of dodge without destroying a historical landmark for the rest of Californial.
Perhaps if Juana had invented a computer in her garage I wouldn't need to be writiting this, but apparently being a healer is enough in this day and age. I am writing this to rally the troops, increase the heat, and let it be known that we've got some very selfish folks in our midst, but most of you are aware of this last point I suppose. Good Day!
