Letter to the Editor: Species list

By RONALD J. SHAW

Editor:

Considering the fact that Medicare eligible military retirees are dying off at the rate of 1000-1500 per day we might be better reserved by our government by insisting that they be given the legal protection of the Federal Endangered Species Laws.

The listing does include mammals, so we could certainly be included in that group, and in view of the rapidly dwindling numbers of military retirees, they should have no problem qualifying. Being added to the Endangered Species list would also qualify them for their fair share of the "pork" Congress so readily attaches to it's numerous bills.
