Re "909: wrong number in beachside town," Sept. 22 I, for one, am a proud "909er" - that group so disdained by Orange County beach community residents for supposedly invading and causing trouble. My house is worth more than $700,000, and my household income is about $180,000. When I want to go to the beach, I go to Hawaii, where the water and beaches are clean and the locals are friendly. I refuse to spend my money in Orange County, where bigoted people are in abundance. I hope other 909ers read this article and stop spending their money in Orange County.
