Letters: Significance for humans that the bird population is plummeting

Posted

Thank you for the article by Len Lear regarding Robert Peck [“City responds to Hill area scientists on bird die-offs,” March 25] . Few seem to understand the significance for humans that the bird population is plummeting. Obviously, it is a disaster for the birds.   That Mr. Peck was able to put in place measures to start reducing this problem is a wonderful testimony to his knowledge, conscience and negotiating skills. We all should use him a model for ourselves.

And in response to the thoughtful letter from Stephen Megargee [“Is Chestnut Hill planning to fail?” Letters, March 25] Here is a 17th Century adage:

“The law locks up the man or woman who steals the goose from off the common. The greater villain the law lets loose who steals the common from the goose.”

George L. Spaeth
