Commending writers for thoughts

To the Editor:
The recent letter from Bill Holcomb, Feb. 23, 2012, is right on target and asks some very valid questions that ought to be asked of Ni America, by the Tryon Town council.
Those answers should be shared with the public at a public forum and published in the Bulletin for those who may be unable to attend such a forum.
I commend Mr. Holcomb for his questions which are probably on the mind of all who get their water from Tryon.
As one who gets their water from Tryon, I know they’re on Anna’s and my mind. The history of privatized water systems in the U.S. is not an especially good one for the people who end up paying for this daily necessity for life.
I also thank the Very Reverend Dr. Michael Doty, who put facts before ideology and shared those facts with readers of his column in the Feb. 23 issue of the Bulletin.
It seems the saying “We are all entitled to our opinions, but not to the facts,” is the principle on which this column is based.
Thank you for publishing both of these.
– Neb Conner, Tryon
