DCLO's nerve

Dear Editor:The Downey Civic Light Opera's chutzpah is impressive. They are an artsy elite, probably wealthy, living off taxpayers for 57 years and now threaten to "go home" if they do not get their $50,000 subsidy. ("DCLO to Continue for Now, but Future Uncertain," 9/13/12) The City Council should call their bluff, cut our losses, and move on. The money would be better spent on the fire department. A year from now the DCLO will not be missed by any but a very few. Gordon Lundene Downey
