To the editor:

Ed Greenspan uses loaded words to describe a non-problem (“Unaffordable Housing,” Letters, Park Slope Courier, March 21). He claims that rents in Park Slope “should be deemed excessive” and that the “average person” cannot afford such rents. So what? I deem excessive the price of those fancy vine-ripened tomatoes. What should I do? Buy cheaper tomatoes? What should a person do who can’t afford Park Slope rents? Live somewhere cheaper? Mr. Greenspan faults Governor Pataki for weakening the rent laws. Well, I fault the governor for not having any tomato laws to protect me.

But be careful what you wish for, Ed. Some people might deem your income and wealth excessive, and call for strengthening the Ed Greenspan laws (taking tax money from you to pay for other people’s housing, food, child care, and health care).
