Letter by Jim Healey

ANWR a national treasure - for oil
With gasoline prices soaring to record levels, Alaska's two U.S. senators have introduced legislation to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge's 1.5 million-acre coastal plain to oil development.

It's a bit uncomfortable to suddenly find myself questioning the value of tolerance. I've spent an awful lot of time and space defending the rights of others to their beliefs, even when they attack mine. Pluralism is a virtue.
