On October 8, we posted a story, "Farm Industry Lobby Appeals Ruling on Bay Pollution limits," with a photograph that offended some members of the farming community. That photograph has since been taken down and replaced.
I offer my apologies for the photo selection. It was my intention to criticize the farm lobby for its continuing legal battle against Chesapeake Bay pollution limits, but not to mock or offend farmers.
We can disagree over this lawsuit without being disagreeable or disrespectful.
Respectfully, Tom Pelton, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
