I would like to acknowledge Tom Fulks’ commentary on April 24, “Where’s the outrage over Nipomo fire that destroyed farmworker housing?” In it, he brings into sharp focus an unbelievable incident where apparently someone, with criminal and hateful intent, destroyed someone else’s future home and dreams.

I hope I am one of many who, although outraged to the core over the act and seemingly gleeful reaction to it by others, have been silent because this ongoing onslaught of viciousness has become an almost unbearable situation that leaves one speechless.

Nevertheless, my thanks not only to Mr. Fulks but also to Greg and Donna France for their attempt to do the right thing for their employees as well as their exemplary nonconfrontational response to so much adversity.

Gidi Pullen, Templeton
