Memo to Hal from Alamo and Jane, and Vet Hall critics from Lafayette and Walnut Creek: Thanks for the advice, but "no thanks." We like the Vets Hall and we think it looks great. If it bugs you that much just close your eyes next time you drive by, then hurry home to the Shell Station that demarks the center of your wonderful little part of north Danville.

Dear Dolores,

It seems "defamously speaking" has a new advocate! How fun is that?

Likely the more appropriate subject for all consideration is how do we stop creating veterans of foreign wars? I am quite sure that the majority that joined me, quite against their will, in Viet Nam are still focused away from being veterans of anything but peace.

But in Robbie's considerations, Danville neighbors are asked to retain a building without any exceptional character in an area that has been significantly rejuvenated with new construction. Thus, the Vet's Hall becomes an exception in its surroundings for many Danville residents.

As most of Prospect has been rejuvenated with resident approval, Danville neighbors are wondering what makes this one building an exception. That is the issue of this discussion that invites commentary.
