To the Editor:

Mary Douglas and the Berkshire Edge are to be commended for their recent, unusually thorough coverage of the EAB-Housatonic River-PCB-related hearings. In a fair and accurate fashion, the article did not shy away from describing a complex and complicated set of issues and arguments yet did so employing language accessible to the lay public. Having been centrally involved with these issues for over 25 years and having followed the media’s coverage during that same period, it is hard for me to recall more than a handful of times when I have come across a similar level of excellence. With great appreciation and hopes for more of the same.
