Well my friend. Many of us that live here do in fact have a vested interest in the community. This is why ligitimate consternation is directed at the overbearing shutdowns. No tears for bums that don't want to work even in the best of times, just for those that want to but are unable because of meaningless business closures.Understandably, my thoughts could be "misconstrued" as "prepotencia". However, you would be right in stating that living in a different economic bubble should not deter one human being feeling for another. The fact is for these "sympathizers", there is an ulterior motive. Besides, if one is so inclined, one might as well write to the editors of the local language publications, if one is able to cobble a few sentences together. Certainly that would carry more weight than these crocodile tears in a publication that caters to a community that has very little vested interest.
