Historic preservationist type gone overboard. Has lost all sense of balance: old is good, no matter what.
The brick sniffers blocked expansion of the children's hospital by getting the old house on thte corner declared a historic landmark. Yes, it looks like a shack your imbecile uncle put together, but it turns it out it was once owned by a 19th century orthodox rabbi who married a mennonite and enoyed macrame. Ergo sacred!!!
