When did letter writer R. Moskal start reading my mind? His comments on the slow drip, drip, drip of harassment and delay over the Port Covington redevelopment is what I've been saying as well ("Killing the Under Armour goose," Aug. 26).

During Light City Baltimore I visited the area and recognized its potential for development. Obviously, so did Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank.

I'm not from Baltimore but I have lived here for some time and, frankly, I've never seen a place so ornery, so unwilling to work collectively and so culturally programmed for failure.

I'd like to see Baltimore thrive, but that won't happen if visionaries with lots of money like Mr. Plank are driven out of town.

I live at the Inner Harbor, which also was once a rundown area like Port Covington. Had the current city administration, "pseudo city agencies" and "self-serving community groups" been around when this area was being redeveloped, our wonderful Inner Harbor community would not exist.

When will Baltimoreans stop shooting themselves in the foot?

R. Heid, Baltimore
