The Daily Planet received a copy of this letter addressed to the Chamber of Commerce:
In this time of agony and anger over the attacks on Sept. 11, it is truly moving to have the Berkeley City Council pass a resolution urging restraint of our overwhelming military attacks on the wretched of Afghanistan.
I support and salute those council members and their citizen supporters who voted on the resolution. I will gladly make purchases in Berkeley. I will not support a boycott.
Let’s not respond with Taliban-like zeal to events but, rather, look at the reality of our actions in the world.
