Letters to the Editor

The year-round blizzard

The blizzard that threatens to sweep us all away, even in hundred-degree heat, is the paper blizzard.

Ninety percent of the snail mail our letter carrier leaves goes unopened into the recycling box. (Is there really still any recycling?)

At least half our Sunday paper — ad supplements — is unseen by human eyes.

Pass a law? The infringements on free speech would be unconstitutional, and rightly so. But how many trees would still stand, giving us shade and oxygen, if commercial interests displayed a little concern and common sense?
