Let's start a fight. It makes no sense in pouring millions into it to preserve another ballpark. It's all the city has been able to do to restore Lamar Porter and Curran Conway. Raze it. The electrical, plumbing, structural and drainage issues are simply too great to preserve a structure that, for all its memories, isn't particularly interesting in appearance.

Valetine, by the way, has said that if the structure is razed and there's an auction of fixtures, he intends to put the men's room "trough" up for sale, stocked with Pabst, on the Arkansas Times Blog.
