I want to congratulate Kohar Jones for her impressive and beautiful article [“The Silent Scourge of Development,” Summer 2005], and you, for publishing it. Especially in this period when greed and deception are often so dominant, to see something like that article is particularly inspiring and a reminder that there are wonderful people in this world, young as well as old. Please pass my comments on to her. She deserves any recognition she gets.
