Put the blame where it belongs

To the editor:

The Army Corp of Engineers killed the river of grass when they built the dike at the south end of Lake O. They killed Lake O when they straightened the Kissimmee River. They have been messing with the Mississippi River and who knows what else.

They are a big powerful bloated bureaucracy, always messing with Mother Nature. And the politicians are suggesting that we put it back the way it was. Let's stop blaming ourselves and put the blame where it belongs: Army Corp of Engineers and elected officials.

My solution to the problem is to demand that Congress defund the Army Corp of Engineers. Of course that will never happen, so say goodbye to our quality of life.
