To the editors:

Wanted to let you know that I, like the majority of Chicagoans, appreciated David K. Nelson’s work [December 20] for what it was–political satire. When Chicago’s aldermen, especially those brandishing firearms at public meetings, become free from the public ridicule they so strongly deserve, the city’s budget problems will become trivial to the havoc created by these self-appointed keepers of the peace (or should it be–keepers of the piece). If any of your advertisers drop the Reader in support of the Tillman forces please publish their names so that I can drop my support of them. Keep up the free speech.
