Three wishes of a reader
Letter To The Editor:
Three wishes for a great new year.
#1- Windmills in place for energy. Why? Power plants have abundant waste and increasingly less options for burial. A percentage is allowed to be jettisoned into the air. More when it rains so that it goes to the ground where it runs off into all waters continually raising level of poison mercury which the waste contains. We are advised to eat fresh and salt water seafood only once a week. For confirmation go to website or library for technical material on atomic power, check index for "waste management." You will see windmills as beautiful then!
Wish # 2- Pasteurize our milk Yes but end the addition of a big glop of silvery goo that is whipped in to suspend the cream throughout the milk. None of us are too weak to tilt the jug to mix the cream in and we have the luxury of pouring off the cream if we please. I doubt if any respectable housewife ever asked for a glop of goo dumped into our milk. Just pasteurize and leave our milk as-is.
Wish # 3 - For support to up-grade our Vets hospitals to assure good care and attention, and if facility is too far for travel, an arrangement to go to nearest regular hospital for care, backed by same system as VA facility. What is so hard for any of this?
Rewards would be: Seafood any or all the time (if it can be cleaned up), 1 cup of extra milk per gallon, sick injured and or traumatized young soldiers rejuvenated back to the good life they left to follow orders that involve all of us.
