Just Stop Having Children

RECEIVED Thu., May 15, 2008

Dear Editor,
    In your May 9 issue on p.31, the photo depicts a boy writing, “Vote yes for the environment.” Don't you get it? It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out that the reason the environment is depleted is because you women out there keep punching out kids, which is overpopulating the planet. This causes habitat to be destroyed to make room for the surplus population.
    Having been raised near the Sam Houston National Forest, I'm familiar with the natural world.
    So you cows stop having so many kids. Hear that tree huggers?
    Instead of throwing money at environmental projects, quit having kids. It's expensive, dangerous, and selfish. Moo cows.
