Re: Jessee Ring's Nov. 6 diatribe on the proposed Mountain Valley natural gas pipeline ("Muddled thinking on pipeline,"  commentary):

He never once used the "f" word, i.e. fracking.

Perhaps Ring had rather we all forgot about the horrendous damage done by hydraulic fracturing. Watch the (Netflix) movie "Gasland" and you'll see good farmland ruined, homes rendered unlivable, tap water that you can set on fire.

Nor would I want to lose my home to give right-of-way to a corporation that admits it will sell the stuff overseas for profit.
