Two weeks ago, Carol Cooke [Letter, “Too Closely Watching?” The Gazette, July 13] mischaracterized my comments concerning the infrequent times I have observed Mount Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck's car in the parking lot of the Mount Vernon Government Building (MVGB) and viewed Supervisor Storck through the windows of his office. I did not state the dates or times of my observances (extending over an 18-month period), nor did I provide a description of Supervisor Storck's car. As such, my letter provided no information useful to the "angry and misguided people" to whom Ms. Cooke referred, other than that they are unlikely to encounter Supervisor Storck at the Supervisor's office. Contrary to Ms. Cooke's assertion, there is nothing whatsoever "creepy" about glancing over to the MVGB while driving by daily and taking note of the infrequent occasions in which Mr. Storck is observed in his office. Now, if I had reported hanging out at Ford's Theatre …. Incidentally, since my letter was published on this subject, I've observed Supervisor Storck's car in the parking lot of the MVGB during normal working hours and viewed him through the windows of his office exactly once.
