I was disappointed that Plastics News saw fit to sweep Plano Molding Co.'s culpability under the rug, using lawmakers as the scapegoat [“We need relief from pork-barrel politics,” March 17, Page 6].
How about mentioning that Plano hired a person to load the political jalopy with pork? Lobbyists and the people who pay them are as much to blame as politicians when it comes to bringing home the wrong bacon.
“Charades such as this are precisely the reason people should get out and vote,” should have been your closing, because if you're not part of the fix, you're part of the problem.
