Quit Your Yuppie Yapping 

The majority that displayed their hands in opposition to 16 screens on Broadway was a minority of hypocritical capitalists [Neighborhood News, July 5].

No one asked the Cherokees about development, but I guess they never paid taxes.

Presently, the whining yuppies gladly drive the cars that this free-market economy forced down all of our throats.

If you can't stand the heat, take the bus, or better yet walk. At any rate, don't vote with your inherited dollar.

David Lee
