Letter to editor re: Marita Noon

Dear Editor:

I just read this outrageous commentary by Ms. Marita Noon who serves as the executive director for Energy Makes America Great Inc., a paid oil  lobbyist.  In the discourse she viciously attacks  the proposed Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument and the outstanding and well-crafted Organ Mountains - Desert Peaks Wilderness Act drafted by Senators Bingaman and Udall with untrue attacks against Senator Bingaman.  As Mark Twain wrote: “A half-truth is the most cowardly of lies.”

Energy Makes America Great Inc.  is an oil lobbyist group, and Ms. Noon is simply an oil industry mouthpiece. It was incorporated in New Mexico in Albuquerque.

By the way this is not about jobs nor the ranching business. It is just a political agenda voicing anti-Federal government rhetoric.
