Dear Minneapolis: Drive-throughs aren't just for lazy people

City leaders should be aware that they're something of a minor miracle for moms with kids in tow and people whose mobility is limited in some way.

Reader Michele Jokinen responds to Should Minneapolis ditch the drive-through?

As a mom of small children who has hit a drug store drive-thru, a bank drive-thru and a much needed coffee drive-thru all in one morning, I have to say I'd miss the convenience of the drive-thru.

I also recently had a broken leg and have a whole new appreciation for mobility in general.

I realize they're not talking about eliminating all drive-throughs, but do want to point out that they serve a purpose beyond giving license to lazy people.
