In your April 20 editorial "Just work it out," you are championing the rights of a Stonington youngster who rides his dirt bike around his parents property to the annoyance of his neighbors while adding to the depletion of the Ozone layer and waste of our precious resources, but in your April 22 editorial "We can all help improve the planet," you tell us to cut back on our wasteful environmental ways so we not further deplete these resources by imploring us to, among other things, "ride bicycles." You can't have it both ways. Which advice does the kid take? Keep riding his polluting dirt bike or save the world by riding a bicycle.
