Letter to the Editor
This coming year is likely to be one of the coldest winters in decades. Cold can be measured several ways. What I’m talking about is the average temperature inside of homes of people over 65 years old. The cost of gas and heating oil is expected to go up over 50% while oil companies rake in record profits. As the temperatures inside the homes of old people gets colder one has to ask themselves this holiday season, “What kind of people do we Americans want to be? Do we want to put oil company profits ahead of giving old people a little heat in the winter?” I vote no.
