Dear Cindy Hady of Fairview: As long as you just sit around weeping for Mother Nature and writing letters to the local paper ["The Developers of the Cliffs Need to Stop This Tragic Development," April 28] your interests will continue to be ignored and steamrolled.
Wake up! This country has a long history of revolutionary and political action, which has done much more for the people than complaining has. Of course they are ignoring you! If you really feel so strongly about the negative impact of development on your life and your community, then you had better take action and make them listen. If you're at a loss as to how to actually fight for what you believe, I suggest starting with Saul Alinsky's classic book, Rules for Radicals. If you don't stand up and fight, business and government will keep on doing what they do, regardless of your letters and suggestions. Good luck!
