SF mayor has wrong perspective

In his recent comments about the prospect of draining Hetch Hetchy ("Mayors take bid for cash to D.C.," Jan. 26, Page B-1), the San Francisco mayor didn't so show his ignorance -- we know he isn't ignorant; we know that he understands the issue -- so much as his lack of objectivity. Ask him to pretend that he is mayor of, say, Eureka, and whether he would then have the same view of the prospect of recovering a jewel that was stolen from the American public too many years ago.
