'Voice Choice'

As the sales and marketing manager for a U.S. corporation, I'd like to thank you for publishing Lenora Todaro's article "World Trade War" [November 30]. It should be required reading for all Americans.

Re Lenora Todaro's "World Trade War": While it's true there is a group in New York that calls itself Reclaim the Streets, Reclaim the Streets is not "based in New York." Todaro refers to the New York group's Web site as if it were the Web site of this "network of activists," when it is one among many. Not a group of any kind, Reclaim the Streets is a sort of political street party that originated in England in the early '90s and has recently been adopted in New York. Reclaim the Streets is a verb, not a noun.
