Re "EPA transparency," by U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart, Tribune Sept. 1.

Chris Stewart, are you nuts?

You're stalling on cleaning up our air in the name of "government transparency" while Utah's air — the worst in the nation — is no longer transparent at all.

I suppose your response is that, "Utah skies are a little thick, but basically air." I could say the same of your head.

As a constituent, I'm encouraging cough-ins during your next campaign. Wherever you speak there will be people coughing. Maybe more Utah cough-ins will result in fewer Utah coffins.
