Letter about perish the thought...

To the Editor,

Frac sand mining in Houston County is a bad idea. Ordinances ad nauseam will never alter that fact. The best thing to do with a bad idea is banish it.

We lock up really bad apples, but continue to entertain the delusion that perhaps we can release this really bad idea into our midst and somehow dream up and enforce adequate regulations to preserve our way of life.

Regulations stand no better chance of mitigating the long-term ill-effects of a really bad idea than does a good suicide note.

Disastrous heart-wrenching damage will bury the best of intentions and things will never be the same.
