I'm sure Ben Franklin had to deal with characters like Sally and Josh Dickinson back in the 1700s when they were debating widening Philadelphia streets from one to two lanes ("County Commission blasted for four-lane vote," Jan. 12).
The Dickinsons and their shortsighted compatriots' hearts may be in the right place, but their logic certainly isn't.
The County Commission has shown much-needed flexibility in its decision to widen SW 24th Avenue, and the benefits will be felt for generations to come. In short, we should welcome this progressive move instead of bowing to the rantings of a vocal minority.
