Dear Editor,

Thanks for the fascinating story by Neal Pollack on street vendors ("The Pushcart War," May 9). It brought me firmly down on the side of the street vendors who are fighting against another stupid city ordinance. Rather than outlawing pushcarts, the city should be encouraging them. It's good to get people like the vendors out on the streets, rather than turning the streets over to more unsavory types.

I am enclosing a contribution to the elote vendors' union. I couldn't find Ed Campos's address in the phone book, so could you please forward it to him?
