We all dislike what has occurred to the World Trade Center. Many of us have never visited the twin buildings. Most photographs of New York would show the World Trade Center. Like two twin giants, they always stood out.
The twin towers were an institution that was unique to New York. We accepted the notion that they would last forever, but our enemies took our pride away from us. Now that they are gone, we miss them. Our lives will never be the same because one of our greatest institutions has been taken away from us.
Locally, we have our own institutions that distinguish us from other communities and gives us a better quality of life. One is the Imperial Irrigation District. But it is an institution we need to protect from those who wish to destroy it.
The Imperial Irrigation District offers some of the lowest electric rates in California. People from San Diego would love for IID to provide them with electricity.
