The Mind-set of a Fanatic 

To the editors:

Your article "Scourge of the Shedd" [November 5] describing Steve Hindi's assault on the Shedd Aquarium was very illuminating of the mind-set of a fanatic. He has become so entrenched in attacking the Shedd that he feels every act aimed at that end is justified. Such rudeness and acts of unkindness turned me off to the man and his "Cause." I left my reading thinking the Shedd is a local treasure and should be supported and cherished. It is a misplaced sense of fairness on the part of local authorities that allows nuts like him to spoil the Shedd experience. Nobody comes to Chicago to see Steve and his goons. These embittered protesters are party poopers and not much more.
