McGuire Scaffold-Watch! Week: ???? + 32

The dwarf army was going great guns this week at the ruins of the McGuire. You could practically hear their little tools scraping away here at 2nd & Blanchard, such was the conundrum. All this activity means nothing as far as the scaffold is concerned. It will still be standing when our grandchildren graduate from college. OK, I exaggerate, but it will be there at least till spring. And then we can celebrate it one-year anniversary. The only problem is that I don't know exactly when it went up. And initially, it stood on only two sides of the building. Now, as you've seen week after week, the entire building is encased - and in a very unattractive way, too. To sum up: the scaffold hasn't gone anywhere (why should it?) and the dwarf army is quite noisy. That's all I've got for you.
