Re "Delta details unveiled - in 34,000 pages" (Page A1, Dec. 10): So we've got this pork barrel Delta project that will allow Gov. Jerry Brown to spend more than $25 billion to supposedly protect our future water supplies. Yet, the same day's paper informs us that a multicountry Dead Sea/Red Sea desalination project, costing just $500 million, will solve a drinking water shortage in that area. Why aren't we pursuing desalination in California? Even if just for agricultural needs. It seems like it could be a bargain and leave our terra firma alone.
