C.D. Wilkinson: Why send money to fix Chernobyl?

May 8, 2014 

Regarding “Giant arch being built to cover Chernobyl site” (Page A6, April 28): It’s all BS. The communists build a nuclear reactor with bad engineering and faulty construction resulting in a nuclear core meltdown. Thousands of square miles were contaminated, hundreds of people killed, hundreds of thousands displaced. And I just read that my hard-earned tax dollars are being spent to rectify their problem. BS.

I live in a town with a high crime rate because of a lack in funding (tax dollars) to keep criminals in jail. They’re turned loose in our neighborhoods! We can’t afford a decent police force. This is pure, unadulterated BS.
