Re: Do-it-yourself city, Oct. 16 letters.
I wish to comment on letter-writer Gary Robinson’s response to the cutting of the 39 trees on 144 Street street property (Developer penalized $175,000 for trees, Oct. 4).
While I fully agree that the cutting of the trees was wrong and that the fine was too little, Robinson should not have gone on an unrelated rant about sorting garbage and how he thought that was so tough.
First of all, the connection between cutting trees and sorting garbage is not at all the same topic.
Second, sorting garbage is quite possibly the easiest thing one could do to save our Earth.
If Robinson cares about clear cutting streams and parks, then surely he can spare the time to sort his garbage.
I am a 12-year-old girl and even for me it’s not hard to sort garbage.
