In more than 3 1/2 years since the earthquake?

Not one historic building--other than the Hotel Florita--has been repaired by the government, or, to the best of my knowledge, anything been repaired through a low-interest loan--by either the public or private sector.

(This does not include work started on the Marie by a Spanish governmental corporation.) And some of the historic building that could have been repaired have suffered a great deal more harm from the elements.

So what could have been repaired?

It is no longer reasonable to repair.

And the longer nothing is done?

The less chance that any buildings in the Historic District can be saved in the future.
