Letter: Fargo’s sewage smells better?

Judging by Erik Burgess’ front-page article in the July 16 Forum, my wife and I are inclined to believe that, somehow, Fargo’s sewage holds a more tolerable odor than Moorhead’s, and perhaps, if Moorhead is willing to pay the price, our sewage odor could be equally as tolerable providing the appropriate chemicals are used.

Once again, we are confronted with the daily Moorhead bashing dished out by The Forum as we engage in our daily level set: unsupervised children running the streets, rampant crime, parking kerfuffles, never-ending road construction, an unfriendly business environment – a quadrilateral parallelogram of unprecedented civil chaos.

On the contrary, we’ve found that for its size, Moorhead has a great deal to offer the community, including an active citizenry, pride in doing what we can with available resources, and an emphasis on providing high quality education from kindergarten through college.

As it has been mentioned in The Forum’s opinion pages several times before us, we call on Forum Communications to cease and desist the ridiculously transparent barrage of negativity against Moorhead, and its portrayal of Moorhead having a substandard quality of life when compared to its larger neighbor.
