Paul Belden’s piece on Nancy Fiedler and her balcony (“Shaky Foundation,” 9/5) is slanted and vitriolic. Fiedler objects to loud, intrusive repair work at her building and actually does something about it. Who in the District wouldn’t identify with this or applaud it? Only perhaps the writer of the article, who either has a personal problem with Fiedler or attempted to write a clever article that turns the table on an unwitting subject. Fiedler’s efforts regarding her building are moderately successful; Belden’s efforts regarding his article are not.
