Regarding the Aug. 27 news article “ Judge now weighs fate of house in Oakwood”: After reading the many articles involving the fate of the “modern” house in the Oakwood neighborhood, I found the whole argument quite difficult to understand.

Considering the real problems in our world such as hunger, poverty and wars, it is unbelievable how a few people could focus so much anger and attention on one’s view outside the front window in an upscale neighborhood where neighbors should be helping each other and the less-fortunate.

We should try focusing our energy and anger on real problems that need solving.
