Bravo to Robin Gomez, who has obviously studied the EA regarding the planned increase in the size and scope of DM's training exercises and understands the potential impact to all our lives. And no praise to the knee jerk responses from people who seem to assume that anything the Air Force proposes must be a good thing without taking the time to "read the facts". The EA is faulty and full of holes and the demand for a full Environmental Impact Study is reasonable, intelligent & the right of every citizen. We should all be thankful that someone cares enough to boil the facts down for public consumption. Read the document first and then decide if it's OK for the Air Force to run rough shod over the lives of all who suffer under its current training program and understand what "doubling" the training plan will mean to our future. People who don't live directly under the current flight path erroneously assume that the Air Force can do no harm. It can and it has and it will continue to do so unless enough good people question its motives and protest being taken for granted. The Air Force is supposed to work for the people and not for its own selfish interests.
