We agree with those who think Bruce Kuhn might have crossed the line of good taste in the remarks he made regarding Sen. Dianne Feinstein "recommending" that the Imperial Valley fallow farmland in order to send water elsewhere in the state and still save the Salton Sea. (We also have to say one of the public officials who scolded Kuhn for his words has not exactly epitomized scholarly, measured debate during his long tenure in public office.)
We do agree with a civil debate in which all options are examined rationally, on this and all other issues. Emotions are important, but so are facts. On the issue of fallowing we have seen nothing but dire predictions on what it would do to our Imperial Valley, so it can't and won't be forced down our throats.
Kuhn strayed too far when he made negative remarks that could be construed to be about Feinstein's body, but he was correct in his stance. While Bruce Kuhn may shoot from the hip, his shots tend to be fired to protect the Imperial Valley, and this time they were right on target.
