Best let-it-go: ST. PETERSBURG PRESERVATION and the CHEESE GRATER BUILDING

Best let-it-go

People freaked the hell out over St. Petersburg Preservation's attempt to save it. "Hippies!" they hollered. After a protracted fight where people who had no problem enjoying the free movies in the park painted the nonprofit preservation group as Satan drowning puppies and defacing public art by eating gluten, St. Petersburg Preservation accepted a compromise: better preservation standards in the future if they'd let this one go. Oh, and the developer also donated $100,000 to further their mission. of course, people freaked the hell out over this, too. "Sellouts!" they screamed. On Facebook, of course, where all real conversations take place.
