I can see it now — letters like the one written by Arthur Jeon (“Pump the brakes on development,” Letters to the Editor, April 4). And so many others who can see, as those in City Hall can’t or won’t, that we’re being buried by more and more development and more and more traffic congestion.

I can see people of a like mind joining together to march on City Hall with signs. The signs say “STOP THE GROWTH,” “NO MORE BLDGS,” “JUST SAY NO.” There will be some shouting. Then someone will throw a rock. It breaks a window. The police arrive. Arrests are made. Channel 7 catches it all and now we are in the news coast to coast.

The city is embarrassed and actually takes notice and re-thinks policy.

Is this just a fairy tale?
