Charles Samuels is Right 

Councilman Charles Samuels would possibly profit from a pot brownie, maybe even a heroin suppository ("Public Official We'd Most Like to See Accidentally Eat a Pot Brownie: Charles Samuels," Best of Richmond, April 27). But in his defense, he is right on target with his attempts to subdue noise, and find another vocation for the homeless.

An unfortunate necessity of our species seems to require a rebellious phase early on. But when the acne squad transmigrates into real-estate taxpayers who fund the system that provides a theater for the acned, generally taxpayers want to enjoy "the peace and dignity of the Commonwealth." I am of that number.

If you want loud noise, get ear buds. If you like the homeless, take one home with you.
