Letters to the Editor

Keep Ultra here

Letter writer Mark Diaz called for the total ban of Ultra Music Fest because there was one death. His call mirrors the intolerance and lack of critical thinking that in our society.

There are more deaths, daily, caused by drunk drivers. Should we ban alcohol? Cars? Drivers? There are more accidental deaths by guns. Should we ban guns? People? There are probably more deaths from people slipping in their bathtubs. Should we ban bathtubs, people, soap or bathing altogether?

Ultra is enjoyed by 350,000 people a year. Attendees come from all over the world. It is a great promotion for our city and brings millions of dollars.

Thankfully, common sense will prevail over dour individuals who hate seeing others have fun.
