- You champion the rights of Mr.Lesser. You fail to consider the rights of the taxpayers who keep this island and Mr.Lesser alive. From reading your opinion piece, one would believe that private property owners and taxpayers don't exist.

Your say it is useless to look back at the history of the ill-advised failure that wasted 3 years of everyone's time and froze real estate sales for those property owners at Islandside.

Government has grown to where it is about them and not the public who pays their salaries. As a nation, we either have to reign our public officials back in or George Orwell will be right.
