Probably the best piece in this paper in years. It's written on such a high level and presents both sides of perhaps one of the most important issues of our time. Herman shines with his self-critiquing plain-spoken style. What a refreshing community columnist. Missing here is the simpletonian views of the Fox Flat Earth Society, the weekly slamming of political leaders and agencies, and the cheers for the good ole 1950's mentality that have stricken this guest column in recent times. The high-mindedness of this article has kept the comments of the daily wolves at bay! Keep on "keepen on" Andy!!!
