Why is Posey County continuing plans for a fertilizer plant?

To the editor:

Regarding the story that Posey County continues with plans for a fertilizer plant (The Herald, June 7):

Did we not learn anything from the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001? We taught the terrorists how to fly jet airliners and then they flew them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field. Remember?

Now, apparently we are going to let a Pakistan-based company develop a fertilizer plant right in our backyard. What next? This sounds like a bunch of fertilizer to me.

If they do build the plant and if they go buy diesel fuel right there in Mount Vernon, I would really be worried.
