They'll Roam the Land in a Cloud of Smoke

Re "Ruling Lets In Mexican Trucks," June 8: Having lived in Mexico for nine years, I've put in my time gagging behind diesel-spewing, bald-tired, brakeless Mexican trucks. The Supreme Court's decision to allow them into this country will be an environmental disaster for California -- even if they aren't half full of illegal aliens and narcotics.

Californians are proud of the fact that we have worked very hard to obtain clean air for our future generations. I am disappointed in our federal government for making a decision to let trucks over the borders, polluting our air. Maybe we should put President Bush behind one of these trucks and see how he likes it.
