Relief bill's flaws II

I resent the government giving my money and yours to owners of New Jersey and New York City properties damaged by the big storm because they will use some of it to rebuild the walls and fences edge-to-edge that prevent us donors from accessing “their” beaches.

Federal largess needs to stipulate that if tax money is spent on repairing coastline properties, access to the sea for all must be allowed.

The best examples are the beaches south of Clearwater, Fla., where towns like Indian Rocks, Indian Shores and the like require property owners to allow right-of-way 12 feet wide or so, about every second block, from the final street to the Gulf beaches.
