Skateboard transit is a plus for Asheville

I am writing in response to the recent Xpress cover story [March 10] about skateboarding as a "crime" in Asheville. There is a lot to be said here about how ridiculous this is. But one thing I think everyone can agree on is that anyone not in a car downtown — such as a biker, pedestrian or skater — is doing a lot [to reduce] traffic problems, parking shortages and poor air quality. This is a positive thing.
