To the editor:

Erik Engquist should not be surprised that Latino members of the City Council did not introduce the sort of candy ban now proposed by Lew Fidler (“Brooklyn Politics,” Flatbush Life, Oct. 11). This proposed prohibition on the sale of certain candies that Latinos prefer is an attack on Latino parents, Latino culture, and Latino bodegas and delis. Latino parents should be outraged that Lew Fidler would dare to tell them that he knows better than they how to take care of their children.

Lew considers these candies too dangerous for children to eat. I suggest that the City Council ban the sale of gefilte fish as too salty to be eaten safely.
