Comment:        SHK 4.0505 Wanamaker's Globe
 
I wonder if in Stephen Miller's next communication from the Globe site he
might mention the 7 million pounds compensation which Southwark borough
council were ordered to pay to a property developer at an earlier stage in
the life of this project.  Also is he aware that two intending financial
contributors to the project in the USA have been prosecuted on charges of tax
evasion.
 
Or maybe he's so besotted with the idea of a Globe theatre on or near the
original site, that these small matters are of no concern to him. I'd like to
see a monument on the site to the seven (or was it eleven?) roadsweepers who
were so unceremoniously displaced from their depot to make way for the
unrestrained exercise of misplaced idealism to operate unchecked.
 
Perhaps in his spare time he might like to tutor the local populace in
matters such as typical Shrove-Tuesday festivities.  Even more, he might like
to participate in them himself. How direct does Mr. Miller want his
observation?
 
Best wishes
 
John Drakakis
