To the Editor:
It saddens me that my words (Daily Planet, Nov. 7) opened onto Greg Schlappich’s universe of fears (Forum, Nov.12). I can see how that would happen. I hope the people of Berkeley can work in delight and harmony and stand with the ideas Mayor-elect Tom Bates offered to the voters during his positive campaign.
I love Berkeley. The times are hard. We will need resolve. And music.
