Let me make this simple and to the point: I and most people against this bag ban should be insulted by Councilor Dean Brookie’s comparison of Los Angeles’ bag ban to Durango’s ban (Herald, Aug. 21). If our council wants to ban all bags in Durango as they did in LA, OK, but don’t try and sell us on banning bags in three stores and act like it is helping the environment. It is not and it is a farce.
The ban, as it stands today, is a tax and will do little or nothing for the environment. People in this town are not stupid and know when they are being duped.
