Suzanne, Would appreciate a more thoughtful response. A little less
passion, and a little more reason. Coolly refute some of the points made in
the article. The article isn't propaganda (let alone 'right wing'), but
represents another, but perhaps not prevailing, point of view. I, and many
others (including serious birders), do not think that changes to the MBTA
that reflect its original interpretation/implementation will be calamitous
for birds or the environment. Dave Gibson, Chesapeake, VA
