Another story about Amtrak cutting back on service [Neighborhood News, March 3]!

After your December [23] Hot Type piece about Amtrak shutting down all those runs from Chicago to Milwaukee, you published [my letter] in your letters to the editor [January 27].

I guess no one questioned my facts, even your intelligent readers. This must mean that Americans are so spoiled by the automobile that they don't care if they have been conned, even in the face of such a blatant greedy move by our biggest automobile marketers.

My original letter comparing auto prices stated that the average price of a car in 1981 was $8,000, not $3,000.

Thanks again to the Reader for bringing this to the public's attention, but as you can see, nobody cares.
