This isn’t national news, but it’s important here in San Diego. Too often the powers that be take a big chunk of our heritage and Disney-fy it, turning classic old buildings into cartoons of themselves in order to sell t-shirts and crappy Wyland coffee mugs and candles to the tourists. We need a Public Market that will serve all the people of San Diego, while maintaining the beauty and dignity of the original structure. Because San Diego is a tourist town, all comments from out-of-towners carry weight with the Port Commision. Please write Ralph Hicks at the Port in support of the Public Market concept. Thanks.
