I respect you, Lanford Wilson, and your lament at seeing our nation's old buildings be demolished... but I'm sorry. The vast majority of Art Deco period architecture and design? Ugly as sin. I'm talking U-G-L-Y without even a hope of an alibi. We're better off without it. Blech.
I wish I had more creative liberty with this assignment. I don't like where my research is taking me at. all. Theater peeps, you know what I'm talkin' about.
