To the Editor:
So, let me get this straight
. You are saying that it is the responsibility of the US Postal Service, a Quasi-Governemtal agency of the Federal Governemnt, to patrol or otherwise police this area during hours that it is closed? Is there any other business within a 20 block radius of this area that has 24 hour surviellance of the premises surrounding their location?
Seems to me that it is far more of a local law enforcement issue. If it is so well known that this area is a "safe haven" for the dealers and buyers, why is it that law enforcement can not have a more frequent patrol at least drive by? Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
I can easily see that the USPS, rather than bend to any demands for more security, could just shut it down. USPS had wanted to close many facilities across the country beginning this year. Bowing to public input and sentiment, very few will be closed but many will have shortened service hours. Perhaps you should launch a petition drive to close this unit. I am sure that the USPS would be happy to take you up on that. Would that make your drug problems disappear?
To the Editor:
Thanks for the insight on
this proposed local legislation re: disabled seating on Muni buses. It is a mistake to cause parents to think that seats for disabled can be used instead for strollers. That is bound to cause unnecessary conflicts.
