Turtles Know Better

Dear Editor,

Humans can’t figure it out, but the turtles can. The powers that be at JFK Airport are seeking to extend runways further into Jamaica Bay. They claim there will be no effect on the wildlife and fish that inhabit the wetlands they intend to usurp. The turtles disagree!

Driven by DNA urges, the Diamondbacks are returning to the place of their birth to mate and lay their eggs. Unfortunately, the sandy shores and mud flats have been replaced by tarmac. These creatures make the best argument against extending runways. Listen closely, the turtles are crying. “You’re killing us!”

Thank you for allowing me to vent.

CHARLES BERNOWICH
