Viewpoint wrong about president on pipeline

The Viewpoint article on page 2B Tuesday featured misleading “information” on the XL Keystone Pipeline. While President Obama sets his priorities, and sticks to them by allowing adequate time to assess the project, which will do nothing to “hold gasoline prices down,” as whoever wrote the article suggests. The Canadian Pipeline will transport a nasty mixture across the U.S., through water sensitive areas, for export to world use, not for American use, for the free market commodity it actually is. As for the marijuana policy, it is about time we freed ourselves as a free nation, from the “yellow” journalism which brought about that inhumane and racially biased system. Get your head out of the sand, Alpena News.
