Hawk, You have no standing to complain about the fountain you did not contribute to. You don't like private. You don't like public. You are a hypocrite. Nobody ever said money means class or taste. You are not Socrates here. But tough cookies. Why do you even care about a KU fountain. You are an old man who does nothing but complain about the institution. Go out to Oberlin and use that theatre.... if it meets your discerning standards, that is. (it was partially constructed and is operated and maintained with public money, by the way)

Hawk wants to encourage private giving, then he just pooh-poohs the Docking gift.Hawk. You really don't want anything. Public or private. I think not_holyrod is starting to make a lot of sense.

Hawk is right on - the Weaver Court is way classier than the Docking Fountain.

How about being for a library just because it is a library? I don't care whit one about the developers. I guess JackRipper and Hawkperched don't like to read. Not_Holyrod sounds like a nice guy.

Jack: all those plans which involved commercial space with a new library I thought to be self-serving for the developers. Perhaps we agree. Fix up/improve the existing building.Of course Hawk will be opposed to anything, a private gift or a public improvement. So no reason to listen to that old man.
