The Last Four Miles, a point of clarification

As I said yesterday, I support wholeheartedly the Friends of the Parks' proposal to complete the open lakefront both on the north and south sides.

But as someone rightfully points out in the responses to Bill Savage's piece printed on Blair Kamin's blog, while the FoP's proposal certainly does not include the extension of Lake Shore Drive up to Evanston, in the real world of politics, the extension could easily be tagged onto the project in order to get the approval of certain public officials who shall remain nameless.

If that is the case, I would vehemently oppose the effort.

I would also oppose any effort to extend L.S.D. south to Indiana.

Whew, glad I got that off my chest!
