Hats off to Jessica Mayrer for “Arrested Development” (see cover story, Jan. 24). Thanks for a clear article about a complex situation. I could follow it all the way to the final quote from Seale: “We’re still hoping we’ll persevere.” What does that even mean? A person either perseveres or he doesn’t, right? “Hoping” to persevere isn’t much of a hope, is it? Thanks again.
