LETTERS TO THE TIMES

No Satisfaction as Davis Rock 'n' Rolls

February 11, 2003

While reading The Times over breakfast Friday morning I was pleased to learn that Gov. Gray Davis enjoyed himself at the Rolling Stones concert at Staples Center (Feb. 7).

When I wrote out the check for my current electricity bill, which is 45% higher than last year, I understood his lament that "you can't always get what you want."

However, after a record-setting spending spree on his reelection campaign, which included unfettered use of private jet aircraft, Joni Mitchell's lyric, "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot," seems more apropos.
