After the jump, Bennet Miller's response to Tuesday's Unfair Park item concerning his desire to tear down a piece of the historically designated Magnolia Station. Miller didn't send it, though -- it came from a slightly frustrated resident of Magnolia Station who gives Miller, who sought the designation protection from the city, some credit for being a "pretty decent inner-city developer." In the missive, Miller explains why he's trying to sell the 70-unit complex (says it ain't a "museum" and that it's too expensive to operate without a rent hike) and why tearing down a piece of the project is necessary to facilitate its sale, as Magnolia Station's been on the market "for over two years." Matter of fact, he says a potential purchaser backed out only last week after working on a deal for more than a year. --Robert Wilonsky
