In response to Robert E. Main's letter (Sept. 13) criticizing the proposed Chatsworth Metrolink station, it goes without saying that we would all like to see more funding for fire protection, police, education and services. We also need public transportation. To encourage people to use the Metrolink station, it should be comfortable, which means having a climate-controlled building to wait in.

He declines with a polite insistence that suggests he's not quite used to all the luxurious trappings. Then, as soon as the waitress leaves the room, he launches into a riff about possibly sinister deeds going on behind the scenes at HBO.
