My father taught me, when I was a young man, that sentimentalism many times blocks the way to good reasoning, and good decisions always must be done by using the brains, not the heart. We are talking about the city taking back the Depot Museum as requested.

I started by saying is totally true that today is the day because there was a past. However, when sentiments get in the way, dominate conduct by blocking the way to good reasoning, then it is time to put sentiments away and look at reality. In other words “when a man is drowning, do not offer him a steak, get him a life jacket.” Logic is the science of reasoning. That is precisely what we are talking about in the case of our Depot Museum.
