Peanut Gallery: Globaloney Warming

re: A neener-neener from a True Green Believer who blames Katrina on global warming.

Hi Dave!

I was a ten year resident of Coeur d’Alene, who recently moved to Albuquerque NM. One of the reasons that I left was because of the narrow minded, backward attitudes and ideas, of the people of the Inland Northwest, such as yourself.

I’ll never forget reading an editorial written by you, that made the comment that global warming was, “globaloney”. After you made that particularly inane comment, I never heard you speak of that again, however, from time to time, my wife and I like to bring it up, just for laughs.

Here’s a brief article that brought your wonderful statement back to life.
