Any empathy that might be felt toward the plight of Ms. Moore [“Kicking and Screaming,” February 18] evaporated when I read that she moved into CHA in 1966. She justifed her long tenure with the statement that, “It [public housing] gave me a sense of independence….

Because I was living in public housing, I was able to do all of that by myself.” Ms. Moore is sadly disillusioned. She has lived in public housing for over 30 years depending on and taking from the taxpayers. It is about time she not only moved out of 5266 S. State, but also out of CHA.
