Punk Paradise Lost

 

continued

As Larcom guessed, he hasn't seen the place in a while--and he says "I'm not interested in seeing it now." But like the residents, he'll miss the RAW: "I loved it, too. It was beautiful."

Simsar "hasn't been charged with anything," Larcom points out. "From the city's standpoint, he has to pay the bill for the boarding up, and it costs a lot to get a contractor out, especially at short notice. But the rest of it--the inspectors, the police, everybody's time and energy--is your taxpayers' dollars at work. We all pay for it."

Who killed the RAW Haus?

"Who's responsible?" asks Chuck Rock. "That's a sticky wicket. You could blame Art for stopping taking care of the house. Or you could blame the kids for being late with the rent. In the end, it's really everybody's fault." Rock says with a sigh. "I'm just sad to see it go."
