Gehry's Hometown Paper Laments Atlantic Yards Controversy

A writer for Toronto's Globe & Mail takes a long look at the Atlantic Yards controversy, not because they're Nets fans or Brooklyn fans, but because architect Frank Gehry is one of the city's favorite sons. Simon Houpt laments that Gehry, quite possibly the world's most honored architect, is caught up in a controversy that keeps getting uglier, noting that critics have compared Gehry's client, Bruce Ratner, to Charles Manson and Adolph Hitler and that some people will lose their homes.
