How Hard Can That Be?

To the editors:

In regard to your article about schools being crowded on the north side, as well as other areas in the city [Neighborhood News, June 8], may I (who would point out that the emperor had no clothes) ask why it takes three years to build a school?

I remember that the United States switched from peace time to war time production after Pearl Harbor. Why can't it build schools in three months, not three years? (I once taught in a "demountable" classroom. It was great!)

I always enjoy the Reader.
