Windmills Are Great, But …

Dear Bay Weekly:

This debate on the windmills [Pulling Pennies from the Air and The TALL Price of Power, Sept. 30; Correspondence, October 14; Letter from the Editor, October 21] is interesting indeed.

A young acquaintance who was going into the business offered to install one at the edge of our wetlands. While spiritually and practically we were all for it, we remembered the constant noise we have heard passing fields of windmills, and we knew we would go nuts with one in our back yard, our resident herons would flee and the many migratory birds would overfly as high as they could.
