Reader: Love or hate Jesse Morreale's First Avenue Hotel, but feel sorry for employees

Last week, Patricia Calhoun wrote about the city's latest order to vacate directed at Jesse Morreale's First Avenue Hotel. Since then, readers have debated about the value of the hotel and the El Diablo restaurant associated with it -- but one commenter advises folks on either side of this argument to keep their eyes on a more important issue.
