Smarter move

November 7, 2010


To the editor:

Missouri is smarter than Kansas. The Kansas Department of Transportation now has the money and plans to run the trafficway through the Haskell Wetlands (Journal-World, Oct. 31, page 1B).

Missouri farmers, meanwhile, will be paid by the federal government $4,500,000 yearly for the acres they have chosen to create as wetlands (J-W, Oct. 31, page 8B).

If you consider paying a farmer to flood an area and basically make it like a swamp; yeah I guess they're smarter over there on the other side of the boarder.

Back in the day they figured slavery was a good idea too.

Maybe it's time to relocate Roy.

Yes, only in Missouri is dampened dry land designated a "wetland." I'm sure the flora and fauna will figure it - it'll be curtains for the dumb ones that don't.
