An old injustice won't justify a newer one
Herald and News by David Porter Misso, Tulelake 5/5/17

Great news for lawyer fees, thanks to the Tule Lake Committee (TLC) and its new and improved lawsuit to shut down our Tulelake Airport and close the largest non-governmental business in this part of Modoc County.

After failing at their 18 months of useless meetings with so-called stakeholders this San Francisco- based organization has put on its legal boxing gloves and will rally gullible big city people from around the globe who have never been to this area telling them that the “rural” folk will destroy the no-longer existing historic resources by fencing in the airport that back in 1942 was part of the Tule Lake Segregation Center.

The goal of the TLC is to have the federal government take over all the land that was once the largest location of a terrible injustice inflicted on mostly American citizens without due process. If TLC wins this lawsuit the American citizens who live here now will face a terrible injustice but in this case there will be due process, a process controlled by courts far from the area in question. Then the local steak-holders end up being hamburger-holders!

It made my day when President George W. Bush signed the bill that created the Tule Lake Unit of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, it was a long time coming but the intent was to not expand beyond the acreage agreed to by all including the TLC at that time. The TLC must start working to improve their anti-rural prejudice and help build a top notch educational visitor center.

Rather than battling rural folk the Tule Lake Committee should be worried about Interior Secretary Zinke who was given orders to review dozens of national monuments. Maybe we should file a lawsuit against San Francisco Airport?
