If you've been following the comment stream on High Country News' recent two part series on salmon ("Columbia Basin (Political) Science," by Steve Hawley, and "Salmon Salvation," by Ken Olsen), then you know how fired up people can get about fish. That includes, of course, the authors of the articles and the primary agencies involved. The Bonneville Power Administration, which sells low-cost electricity from many of the dams in the Columbia Basin, has protested both stories. We ran the agency's first letter, along with Hawley's response, in the print magazine. The letter the agency sent in response to Olsen's story was so similar to the first we decided not to run it in print. But we'd still like readers to see what the agency had to say, and we invited Olsen to respond in kind. Definitely worth the read:
