Developers' PR coup
From: Thomas W. Simon
Just as Senator Bentsen reminded Dan Quayle that he was no John Kennedy, so developers need to be reminded that they have a long way to go before they become environmentalists.
To indicate otherwise represents revisionist history at its best.
The developers of Patuxent Springs in Laurel have pulled off the ultimate public relations coup.
In case you did not know, developers do not simply develop homes, they also develop wildlife sanctuaries. Never mind that Winchester Homes only discovered their environmental consciousness after citizens from neighboring Hammond Hills organized, threatened and protested the proposed devastation of 55 acres that included the destruction of trees, hills and anything else that stood in development's way.
