New developments in the troubled rain forest project simply serve to reinforce my original opinion that this is one of the most unnecessary, inappropriate and ill-thought out plans to ever come begging for millions of dollars. It would be far better to forget the idea and substitute something else or nothing else. Surely, there must be others who dream of a project for that prime real estate in Coralville, perhaps something that would be more fitting and appropriate for our temperate-climate state.
