In his recent column, "Oswegatchie Hills important to birds, too," (June 20), Robert Tougias suggests the Oswegatchie Hills are important for purposes other than development. He uses such nebulous terms as "quality of life," "preservation" and "spiritual" while telling us of the Warblers there. How important are birds and those other things compared to scratching the Earth to its rocky base and putting up something?

Maybe the Nehantics could put up a neon casino on this ideal place for it. As Steven Colbert might say, "now you're talking development."
