LETTER: Progress?

Four hundred years ago in London, royalty and the rich rode their coaches through the city streets and tossed pennies out the window to the hungry masses.

Now the ultra rich dazzle the huddled masses by roaring into the edge of space to show their wealth.

A few of the poor people in London might have been lucky enough to catch a penny.

Now, we get to watch them on TV as they waste their tax breaks and pollute the air with their hot rods.

These flagrant excesses demonstrate, beyond any doubt, who our elected officials represent.
