Chad Mullins' unfortunate "U. car lots a broken promise?" (Opinion March 26) begins with mistaken premises; and as Cicero observed, "there is never a proper end to reasoning which proceeds on a false foundation."
The University of Utah's decision to build parking garages will not be "added parking," as Mullins alleges. Since 2008, campus construction has removed 1,590 parking spaces; an additional 1,475 spaces will be lost by 2015.
Replacing 1,132 spaces against a loss of more than 3,000 isn't additional parking; it's a reduction of 1,933 spaces.
