From the 2/20-27/95 New Yorker section entitled "Better Late Than
Never," which includes letters-to-the-editor received between 1925
and 1993. Prior to 1993, the New Yorker did not publish letters
(In June of 1962, the magazine published a three-part
article by Rachel Carson, "Silent Spring," on the dan-
gers of pesticides, especially DDT.)
June 29, 1962
Miss Rachel Carson's reference to the selfishness of
insecticide manufacturers probably reflects her Commu-
nist sympathies, like a lot of writers these days.
We can live without birds and animals, but, as the cur-
rent market slump shows, we cannot live without business.
As for insects, isn't it just like a woman to be scared
to death of a few little bugs! As long as we have the
H-bomb everything will be OK.
