Slaight: The issue remains the same

Thank you to the Lake County News for publishing my letter questioning the information that we are given concerning Lake County air quality.


The comments my letter received, however, were troubling. One comment from a reader alluded to some vague, unexplained notion of a contrail conspiracy. Others took the bait and responded to that diversion, instead of my letter concerning air quality and accountability.


There may be no quicker way to sabotage a legitimate issue than to simply mention the loaded word, “conspiracy.” Having local officials and politicians define their terms and support their statements seems to me to be quite reasonable. That was the issue and it still is.


Tom Slaight lives in Cobb.
