I just have to drop Xpress and Asheville a line here and "express" my appreciation for the coverage that was given to the workers involved in the April 30 sewage incident [“Code Red,” June 19 Xpress].
It looks as though they were the equivalent of the Japanese workers that went into the Fukushima disaster, sacrificing their health for the good of the human community. I would think that it would be important for all of the affected communities to do what they could to ensure that these brave individuals are not treated like the first responders of 9/11.
I appreciate the entire crew being on the cover of your publication; this is so much closer to the hearts and minds of your readers. Keep your current trajectory, and you will have a very smooth flight into the night, Xpress!
