I'm outraged at the university's plans to demolish the handball court, the oldest of its kind in the country. Their halfhearted plan to preserve some of the bricks is a joke. If the university had saved some of the bricks from every other historic landmark they've destroyed over the decades, they would probably have enough material to build a dam across the Mississippi by now.
