The Daily Planet received a copy of this letter addressed to the City Council: 

I am appreciative of the City Council’s rejection of the bombing of Afghanistan. Please do not let Mayor Dean force a retraction. Please recognize that the long term gains for Berkeley (international respect, unforseen financial gains, political prestige, civic pride, the ability to look in the mirror with dignity) may balance out the short term losses.
