Regarding the closing of the United States Art Authority [“United States Art Authority
,” Arts, Aug. 1]: Do the owners of that business really expect to be shown special consideration because of their “cultural contribution[s]” to the city? Give me a break. What they fail to mention is that tapping into counterculture is part of their business plan, designed to make them money. While I have no problem with the making of money in general, I find offensive the implication that they deserve special treatment for “promoting the scene in [their] own small way.” Bullshit. What they're doing is running a business, and they should have the same constrictions as all other business owners.
