Pipeline is as beneficial as interstates once were

David M. Gradwohl’s Nov. 8 letter stating the “deleterious” effects of the Bakken Pipeline is humorous at best [Pipeline project has no substantial public good]. If he is old enough to remember when President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed the national interstate system, I am sure all the deleterious effects he mentions would have applied 100 percent. The same substantial good of the pipeline for America’s citizens applies.

With his emeritus status he probably has access to the university’s libraries and should pay a visit when he gets a chance.
