The environmental activists who oppose the road through Penasquitos Canyon ("Suit Planned to Halt Penasquitos Road," May 6) are fighting an uphill battle. I'm not optimistic about their chances for success.
San Diegans drive pickups in record numbers. Off-road vehicle ownership is the highest in the nation. Voter apathy is the highest in the state. And there's a freeway through every major park in the city! Concern for matters environmental is vanishingly low. Most people here could care less about Penasquitos Canyon.
San Diego is the kind of city where people have bumper stickers which say, "I love my truck." It's trucks first, people second and Earth last!
