Letters to the Editor

Letter: Long live the eagle

My letters to the editor are often an attempt to fix some misguided plan or policy or to rub someone’s nose in their own stupidity. Thank goodness for Kathleen Dean Moore’s op-ed “The day the eagle died.” I could not waste a minute to send a letter of praise. Every sentence was a divine revelation.

In her world, “An eagle might understand better than a human what a glory it is to have been an eagle, but what a greater glory to become an ocean.” If a religion ever espoused such anecosophical point of view, I would become a supplicant. The eagle is dead, long live the eagle!
