Petition Process
By Chris Elliott


July 10, 2007

While it may have been flippant, my recent letter (Bolling For Taking Mine) was not intended to be a "personal criticism". That a successful long-time participant in the free market would support an effort to deny real property owners their rights baffles me. Arguing about jewelry stores is like arguing about whether we have too many Subarus in Ketchikan. It results in a monotonous atmosphere for local residents and visitors. We should have a vote to decide whether the number of Subarus sold in Ketchikan should be limited for the sake of diversity. No one would take that seriously because it would infringe on the rights of others.
