Let me say first that I oppose term limits (Loose Lips, 1/19, 6/15; The Mail, 6/8) and I voted against them in the 1994 referendum. But I can’t let the colossal arrogance of the nine members of the D.C. Council who voted to repeal them pass without expressing some indignation. Who do they think they are? If they are against term limits, let them propose a new referendum and let the people decide.

At least they should have the decency to make the repeal provisions apply only to newly elected Councilmembers. What a gross display of disdain for the voters they pretend to represent. Shame on them.
