Those Environmental 'Extremists' Who Worried About Shrinking Wetlands, Overbuilding, Inadequate Zoning, Eroding Coastlines, Etc. Well They'll Screw Up the Reconstruction as Well!

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 6, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Speaking of fantasy, the editor is so desperate to put a negative heading on my letter he's tripping out about "good right wingers" ["Postmarks Online," Sept. 2]? The only people I mentioned at all were environmental extremists, and the fact that they will indeed file lawsuits to prevent any new construction on what is deemed a "sensitive habitat." And the slight fact that anything, either moving the entire city to doing what's needed to protect New Orleans in place will indeed impact habitat, spawning the lawsuits. If the editor cares to deny that, let him do so without his usual personal attacks on me. He seems to be the one so desperate to mention "righties" when I never did. I think that's called deflecting attention from the point of the letter, which he either is unwilling to address or didn't understand.
