Thanks to Amy Carroll for her insensitive approach to denying the comforts of parks and the beauty of nature to the "grays," as she calls us senior citizens ("Mays Chapel residents sue county school board over land transaction," March 28).

Joe A. Hairston, Baltimore County's next schools superintendent, is a man in much demand.
