Editorial: Seawall exemption takes from the many to give to the few

IMAGINE SOMEONE built a house at the top edge of a very steep slope. It wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but the lot was beautiful, and the view from that elevation was spectacular. It’s a very expensive house, and beyond that, it’s someone’s home.
