Whalen has it backwards

Re "Brown has a point about low birthrates among well-to-do" (Viewpoints, Aug. 21): Bill Whalen has it backwards. We don't need the wealthy getting busier. We need the rest getting busier - with birth control.

Overpopulation is destroying the planet. We need fewer, not more, people. And what's wrong with a sluggish white fertility rate? Why shouldn't the affluent be a different color?

There will always be the rich and the rest. We need less of both.
