More Stories Needed
Two pieces [on wind power] in your June issue and not a single mention of the possible effect of bird strikes on migratory bird populations? I believe you owe your readers a look at all sides to this story. You also did not mention the increased number of homeowners erecting micro-turbines in their own yards, the lawsuit over wind turbines at the King Ranch (not everyone wants to see these enormous structures in their backyard or on the nearest ridge) and the current situation with regards to state and federal incentives supporting wind energy. It would be nice to see more in a future issue.

Another Permanent Memory
Celia Yeary brought me home to my own childhood memories in her article “A Permanent Memory” [April 2008]. It transported me back to those days, identical to hers, of my mother’s kitchen and home perms. Some of my memories of those perms are not good ones! Also, I thank you for the reassurance that I am not the only one in the whole world who is afraid of a pressure cooker!
