I appreciated Pamela Brodie’s superior letter-to-the-editor of July 3, offering a retort to Tim Bradner’s, pro-Pebble column of
June 30. Her response was thorough and comprehensive.
One criticism of the Bradner article was left untouched, however. In it, Mr. Bradner notes:
“… I don’t believe we have to make an either-or choice; we can have the fishery and the mine.”
This is conclusory, in that it draws conclusions without supporting evidence, and begs the ultimate question: how can that mine possibly exist near the greatest salmon fishery on the planet?
Mr. Bradner is a good person, a good writer, and comes from a great Alaska family. But there is a price to pay for corporate journalism.
