To the editor:
I take strong exception to the Jim Day editorial cartoon that appeared in Sunday's edition of the Review-Journal. This cartoon, regarding the Yucca Mountain Project Web site, specifically, the "Youth Zone" section, provides your readers with a libelous view of our Web site and of our intentions. To even intimate what the cartoon does is contemptible.
There are 2,000 Nevadans who work on this project. These are good, hard-working and honest people. They do not deserve to be painted by a libelous and insulting brush by people who do not support this project.
Your paper owes an apology to the people of this project for the allegation, the insult and the incredibly poor judgment.
THE WRITER IS ACTING DIRECTOR OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S OFFICE OF CIVILIAN RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT.
