So many intelligent solutions were brought up by Herald readers (Fast Focus, May 6). But then the intelligent solutions were shot down by the Herald's editorial on the next page, "Asparagus left in the field shines light on immigration."
Where does the blame game stop? It's not the fault of the nation's crack down on illegal immigrants that fields rot or go to seed. The federal and local government should have had the foresight to have a backup plan to use the resources available when such problems arise.
Did we not learn anything from the inactive government in Louisiana during the Katrina fiasco?
So much could have been done to help in both situations.
