"Hopes for flight grounded" [News, Aug. 1] described more needless bickering over an insignificant issue. A plane in the driveway would be an improvement in my neighborhood.

So a plane belongs at an airport, huh? What about gigantic boats on trailers, some covered, some not, parked in the driveway? Don't they belong in the water? Or oversized recreation vehicles parked on the grass or the driveway -- don't they belong on some campsite? Let's not forget those illegally parked commercial vehicles.

Most boat owners keep their boats on trailers in the driveway, to save docking and storage fees. I don't see town officials requiring zoning variances for boats or RVs.
