Some architect. Demolitionist is more like it. What a terrible legacy he left, getting filthy rich while wrecking as many newspapers as he could. Shame on him.

He has destroyed a great deal more than he has created. You can pray for him if you like but I ask you to also to pray for the poor hardworking employees still working for Journal Register Company.
