An Oct. 6 letter writer went to the Internet to discover how cane is harvested without burning in other countries.
The problem is that he did not learn if there was a difference in cost between that country and Maui. He did mention Brazil, but nothing about cost.
How about making a comparison of what the workers earn there against what they earn here?

If you're going to pretend to do research on something like this, how about being intelligent about it and not take us for blind mice.
