I find that your paper is way off-center with the Loose Lips column of Sept. 24, on the Columbia Heights area. Our community spent a lot of time and effort coming up with a plan. We were given the indication from the city that they gave a crap about what we wanted. We spent a lot of time as a community to come up with this plan. Thousands of man-hours were spent taking our ideals into a concrete plan. The Redevelopment Land Agency has thrown that in the community’s face and left us with substandard developments. I find that you trashed the community with your story. All of the other stories that were written on this issue are 180 degrees from yours, so I have to ask: Where are you coming from?
