Re "It's not the granola crowd who are going to move mountains" (Worth Repeating, April 25): Gov. Jerry Brown, in a comment to Bloomberg Businessweek about the role of big business in reviving California's economy, says that it's the people who amass money who get things done, not the "granola crowd," obviously referring to us environmentally concerned taxpayers.
People who've moved mountains have far too often trashed the surrounding areas and left big holes instead. This is why many of us in the "granola crowd" are wary of "Jerry's Follies," his two pet egomaniacal bullet train and water tunnel projects, which will require moving mountains of dirt, and may leave a big environmental and financial mess to deal with after he's gone, while big business gets to count its "piles of money at the end of the day." We're tired being bulldozed by Brown, Inc.
