To the editors:

Your piece [Neighborhood News, May 11] on the peevish refusal of the Rogers Park Tenants Committee to post safe school signs made them sound like the guy on a raft quarreling about who should throw a line to a sailor overboard surrounded by sharks. And meanwhile the children die.

You made them sound like a bunch of incompetent brain-dead evolutionary rejects with their own private agenda that has little to do with the welfare of the community.

I think this is shocking and demand an apology!
