I wish to applaud the people who wrote letters about some Clearwater Beach merchants' view of day-trippers. I agree with all of the letter writers.
We live and work here, and I think we should have first dibs. We pay the taxes and support many merchants.
Some weekend, about 20,000 or 30,000 of us ought to go to Clearwater Beach, bring our own drinks and food, and see what the greedy merchants at Clearwater Beach think of that.
