In response to Art Bailly's letter: if someone in the city's administration told him that $50,000 was too much to spend to put a crosswalk light at the intersection of Carlanna and Baranof, then it seems that a monetary value has been assigned to the life of each child who needs to cross there, and it is not high.

I bet if Mr. Bailly could figure out a way to get those children to spend a couple of hundred dollars apiece per year on cheap t-shirts and tacky trinkets, he'd find there was a sudden upsurge of interest in finding ways to get them safely across the street.
