Letters to the Editor

From the issue of March 8, 2000

Baseball: Crowds, Congestion, Catastrophe
Say no to your pol: Biscayne Boulevard, Miami Avenue, Flagler Street, Calle Ocho, Brickell Avenue, Coral Way, Bayshore Drive, Biscayne Bay, Bayside Marketplace, and the Miami River may have their faults but they are among many other things that make downtown Miami and its surroundings something special for local residents, the people who work here every day.

With the current transit problems we have in downtown Miami, adding a Marlins stadium will be catastrophic. How many times have you tried to use these and other thoroughfares only to promise yourself you'll think twice before ever coming back? A downtown baseball stadium won't mean more congestion merely every other week. How many home games will the Marlins play? Something like 80?

I will not support a baseball stadium in downtown Miami. If you don't want to support it, please do something about it. Don't let city and county officials give away our city.

Delightfully Wrong
It's just a name, but it's her name: Regarding Alfredo Triff's article "Return of the Real Native" (March 1), please correct the name of artist Susan Morris to Susan Mains. It was a delight speaking with Alfredo about issues passionate to us concerning immigration matters affecting artists from the English-speaking Caribbean.
