To the editor:
Lawrence is a place of contradictions. On the one hand, it claims it is eager to attract retirees. On the other, it persistently promotes projects which have negative consequences for the “mature” Lawrencian, like brick streets and sidewalks.
Even the fleet of foot have to tread carefully to avoid bumps and cracks; the less nimble and the handicapped are well advised to stay at home. I appreciate the “historic” aspects of the brick surfaces, but this is not the horse-and-buggy era, but the 21st century. A few scattered stretches of loose bricks, north-south or east-west, will not bring back the past.
