Turn off your gas if you want to complain

Dear Editor,

In the Post Independent’s Nov. 7 issue, there is a letter titled “We’re headed to ruin,” in which Garland Anderson vilifies our domestic natural resources, focusing upon our natural gas and oil industries.

Now, is Garland Anderson sincere in his vilification of our petroleum industry?

Has he sworn off the use of an automobile, and turned off his natural gas and electricity? If not, he’s all talk and not willing to make the sacrifice that he wants us to endure.

He reminds me of the fellow down in his neck of the woods, who, to make a point, swore that he wouldn’t use natural gas – he used propane. Now, where did he think propane came from, if not the very gas wells he wanted to shut down?

Come on, Garland, show us that you mean what you say by turning off your gas and electricity and selling your car!

Then after six months, Garland, please let us know how you’re doing.
