Historic preservation isn't just about saving pretty places; it's about saving important places. It's either significant or it's not, and that's not usually a matter of opinion. It is also separate from the argument of condition or economic viability or politics. It's important to take the long view with buildings like the Memorial Coliseum and think of ourselves as stewards of the heritage of the next generation. We don't always know right now what will be important in the future. We give the benefit of the doubt to the buildings because they are irreplaceable.
