I was halfway to writing a defense of keeping it, mindful how close the county courthouse came to demolition when it was this age, when I asked myself if anything particularly historic had ever happened in that building, or if it somehow played a big part of life in Fort Worth during its time with us. That's when it hit me that this is a building that most FWers never even see except when they actually go there. It's completely isolated from the thriving parts of downtown. Not only is the brutalist design discouraging of interaction, the entire land use around it has rendered it almost invisible in our civic life.

Start over, try again.
