To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Let’s see now. We are going to disrupt countless residents’ lives and property assets with the "Rest of River" cleanup, kill off and drive off the wildlife that is currently flourishing in and along the river, and, create a drainage ditch river like the Pittsfield first phase cleanup. This will go on for over a decade to result in a waterway that can ostensibly be used for recreation, boating, and, catch and release fishing.

But wait -- I believe this is what we have today. The absurdity of all of this is mind-boggling.
