Linda Reynolds’ hysteria-laced diatribe against the proposed Phillips 66 rail spur would have us believe that it would destroy our “distinctive towns, pristine coastline, magnificent dunes, rolling vineyards and wineries, beautiful vistas” and on and on.
Oh, please. Such reckless hyperbole is nonsense.
Nowhere in her lengthy, generalized attack does Reynolds cite a single specific safety issue with the rail project.
Rather than simply publish a shrill complaint from the head of a special interest group, perhaps The Tribune could assign a reporter to provide a balanced, factual account of the pros and cons of this project. That would be a real public service.
