Nonny Sagalyn Burack: Let’s call them NITBYs

To the editor:

How amazing! Had anyone else noticed? All the material with which we are being swamped assuring us that a wonderful addition The Retreat will be in North Amherst — and how as a Town Meeting member I got a really thick packet — $1.36 worth of postage — comes from persons who stand to make goodly profits from student housing.

The few not in the landlord business, as two letters writers point out, are a new breed of NIMBY — let’s call them NITBYs — Not In Their Back Yard.

Instead of calling it a wonderful addition, let's just call it doing the right thing.
