Sam Hall Kaplan was really on target--"L.A.--Whose City Is It Anyway?" (Oct. 23).
How can we promote any growth in development or population when our sewers, streets and highways cannot handle the present load, our police department can't handle the wave of drugs and crime, our hospital emergency rooms can't accommodate the patients?
Those of us who were raised here have seen this paradise fall into a decay that is devastating! The environment is so polluted one is hard-pressed to remember clean air, clear water (we don't have enough of that either), even clean streets! I am ashamed of our city streets. Whatever happened to anti-litter laws?
