To the editor:
In regarde to the article about Dagesse and the Balsams (published May 13):
What a pile of hypocrisy! When Dagesse, in selling out, denies that he has lost faith in the project’s success, one understands that that is exactly the case. As with the politicians, denial means it is most likely true. The whole Balsams “redevelopment” affair is simply a boondoggle, which shows how gullible people are. But Les Otten and his buddies will manage to walk away from it with money in their pockets. Otten is just a small-scale version of that other well-known shady real estate operator — what’s his name now?
