Name change

Dear Editor:So the City Council doesn't have the right to tell a business to change its name. ("City's Official Statement on Bastards Sports Bar," 5/10/12) How come they were able to change the name of a new grocery store recently? Once again the City Council shows us that they don't care what the citizens of Downey want. They believe we are smart enough to vote them into office and dumb enough to believe whatever they tell us thereafter. Come election time, we shall remember you. Doris Hannon Downey

Dear Editor: Just because a group of Marines decide on a vulgar name to call themselves, does that justify plastering that derogatory name on a building? What a legacy our City Council will leave as Downey may become known as the bastard city. How much more vulgar can our society become? Think about it. Helen Hanges Reagan Downey
