Like noise, residents must deal with housing shortage

Editor,

Regarding the housing shortage for incoming Navy folks, while I was living in upstate New York and commuting to Manhattan people routinely commuted two hours each way.

Like I have been told about the noise, “Get used to it, buttercup.”

Same applies to the Navy folks having to commute … get used to it buttercup!

I understand Fallon, Nev., has plenty of room and infrastructure. If you don’t like it, move.
