Monday's Letters to the Editor

A drought buster?

EDITOR: Why is there no discussion of cloud seeding to increase either the Sierra snowpack or our local rainfall? It has been tried in the past and evidently has little or no environmental damage.

Pension board appointee

EDITOR: The labor groups that objected to the appointment of a member of the Sonoma County Taxpayers' Association to a County pension board reveal their truly radical position ("Pension board pick draws criticism," Wednesday).

Who has a more legitimate interest in how things are run in government than the taxpayers who pay for it all? To many it seems we have moved too far from Lincoln's government of, by and for the people to what the public employee unions would have, which is government of, by and for the employees.

JACK ATKIN

President, Sonoma County Taxpayers Association
