Letters | Marijuana growers should pay more for electricity

These high-use customers drive the need for increased supply, which all customers have to pay for. A gas electric plant costs in the neighborhood of $80 million. Should we all have to pay increased rates, or just the customers who use twice the average or more?

Letters | We could stop an ice age

In “Have we accidentally prevented another ice age?” (Danish Plan, March 21), he supports global warming as preferable to another ice age, but, not being a climatologist, he doesn’t understand that they are not alternatives.

Letters | Erie mayor fracks with nature

Mayor Joe, for numerous weeks I have read your opinions in the Colorado Hometown Weekly and watched you bumble your way through with more name-calling (melodramatic, over-the-top fracktivists, and you even had the audacity to cut down Al Gore.)

Letters | Knock up Danish

I’d like to see Paul Danish strap on a pregnancy suit for nine months, be induced to vomit every day at least three times for at least three months, then I, as a clinical hypnotherapist, rabbi and mother of three, am happy to hypnotize him through a sensory experience of labor and birth and abortion, and only then see how he compares going to a store to buy a gun with such.
