Free Will Astrology Not My Cup of Tea

Dear Bay Weekly:

I’ve been reading your little supplement for some time and am fortunate enough to utilize two of the services that you listed. That, of course, is a three-way partnership that works very well.

Now I’m going to make an editorial comment.

I happened to be into astrology and astronomy, and I highly dislike your Free Will column. I think you can find much better, more accurate columns and that that gentleman is a little off base, seems a little unbalanced, seems to have real favorites [among the signs]. And obviously he’s a Democrat. Anyone who writes an astrological column shouldn’t be so obvious about their political choices.

I would truly like to find an enjoyable astrological column. I happen to be from one of the signs that is very, very blessed, but you wouldn’t know it from Free Will Astrology. This one is just another one going after my sign with fangs showing.

This response is coming from your Letters to the Editor begging to keep him.

Cove Point Pipeline Not at Fault

Dear Bay Weekly:

I’ve just read and thoroughly enjoyed the Oct. 23 issue of Bay Weekly. Thank you for making it available online (http://www.bayweekly.com/old-site/year08/issuexvi43/dockxvi_43.html).

I must disagree with one statement in your news brief concerning the Cove Point pipeline, however.

Your article states that:

That hurdle popped up in July, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia agreed that the natural gas Dominion was already piping caused leaks in Washington Gas lines in Prince George’s County.

The court actually agreed with Dominion and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that the gas from Cove Point did not cause the leaks. The leaks were caused by defects on the WGL system, attributed to poor construction and maintenance of the seals.

The court agreed with FERC’s conclusions that any leaks on WGL’s system related to LNG deliveries were a result of defects on that system, which WGL was responsible for fixing, but remanded the case to FERC so that the Commission “can more fully address whether the expansion can go forward without causing unsafe leakage.”

I know you’re a stickler for accuracy. Thanks for setting the record straight.
