No substitute for direct experience
To the editor:
In response to William Thomas’s letter, “Awaiting alternatives to the nixed N.H. Charrette plan” posted April 8. After reading this, I am not sure how anything in this letter has any credibility. Apparently folks can write letters pertaining to subjects that they know nothing about.
In his own words, “I don’t know too much about the charrette,” yet he goes on to tell us what it is about. Then he goes on to say “I have been unable to attend any of the meetings or hearings on this subject,” but feels he knows what has happened at these meetings. He talks about people ranting with impunity from behind their computer screens, but apparently believes you can write a letter about subjects where you get your information from hearsay.
If Thomas is that easily swayed to believe things he hears from others without doing his own research, boy, do I have a deal for him. How about 100 prime ocean front acres in Arizona? I’ll give it to you for $1, and even throw in a free case of Kool-Aid.
