Letters | Farewell to Uncensored


(Re: “-30-,” Uncensored, Aug. 30.) I’m sitting here wondering just when you creative, political women in Boulder are gonna quit breakin’ my damn heart … puhleeze.

First KGNU’s fun, lively and diverse Marty Durlin, and now you, Pam White, one of my favorite Boulder writer/editors and one I’ve read for the last 20 years — yup, right from the beginning. Thanks. I learned an awful lot about (Boulder?) women and women in general over the years, not that I always agreed. I remember something on women’s health that helped me cope with a girlfriend’s death from ovarian cancer as well.

Only met you once there in the BW office. Sorry it couldn’t have been more.

Goodbye old friend and all the best.

Dear Pamela,

I was recently in Boulder and caught your “swan song” column. I’ve been an infrequent reader over the years but have greatly appreciated your writing. Never realized you considered yourself a feminist writer but knew you always wrote about issues that concerned me and I learned from your columns.

Will miss your voice! Best wishes in your new endeavors.

Thank you for being a champion journalist.

I shall personally miss your dedication and doggedness in pursuing many, many articles that were important to women, in particular, and the Boulder community as a whole.

Good luck and happiness in your future endeavors.

More on Monsanto

(Re: “Monsanto’s point of no return,” cover story, Aug. 30.) Regarding Joel Dyer’s article on Monsanto practices, and letters wondering what we can do: For part of a solution, see the recent book American Grown. It is not only a start at taking back our food supply; it’s a prescription for better food for better health and an incredibly optimistic viewpoint on the potential for taking back control of what we eat. Yeah, it’s got some of that hope-y/change-y stuff, but you’d expect it from the author!

Obviously you can’t grow all your own food here in Colorado unless you’re really fanatic about it. But you can do a lot, and you can connect with other folks to learn how to do more, and find good seed sources, and learn to “grow your own.” Community is part of it.
