Different priorities

The prevailing assumption running through “Priests in Voting Booths” (October 2008) is that the world oil supply will soon run out. I’ve heard estimates that the United States alone has enough oil in its own territory to meet its needs for 150 years, if we would just get serious about drilling it. Uwe Siemon Netto does a fair job of theoretically differentiating the kingdoms of the right and the left and then violates it by taking a doctrinaire position on a debatable issue. I, for one, will take other concerns and priorities into the voting booth Nov. 4.
