Re "Heartbreak Hotel" [January 24]:

According to one of the two "activists" trying to "save" the Plymouth Hotel, he can't imagine there's much support for the Freed proposal in the community.

He's wrong. There's a mountain of support. Had you interviewed anybody else in the community you'd have learned that quickly.

Also, as to the effect of a Borders on the Women & Children First bookstore in Andersonville, did we somehow exclude Uptown from capitalism when I wasn't looking? WACF should have to compete as any other business does in this great capitalistic country of ours. Moreover, WACF is more than a mile away from the Borders. If it's so afraid it can't compete with a bookstore more than a mile away it shouldn't be in business.
