Fighting the ISTYs


Having read the article entitled "What's in a name?", I have to laugh at the ISTYs of the City Council being concerned that the Warm Springs hotel will not have a brand name and asking for a guarantee of a high level of service!

It is none of the city's business what a hotel might be named, nor to ask for a guarantee. After all, the city conducts itself in an illegal manner time after time!

I hope that the city concerns itself more that there should be no loss of recreational facilities. We have already lost the best tennis courts in the area. And much of the golf course will be replaced by buildings. And the golf course will probably not be affordable for the local citizens.

I hope the city IFUGs come to their senses and listen to the citizens and use logic in their decisions.

And, I also wish that the Mountain Express IMBYS would stop editing my letters. I also wish that they would stop printing only half of my letters because they don't agree with me.

By the way:

ISTY = I'm Smarter Than You.

IFUG = Idiots For Unbridled Growth

IMBY= In My Back Yard.
