Snakes column a good hoax

I would like to thank your contributing editor, Glenn Tucker, for his brilliant article about the S.C. Department of Wildlife's proposal to release poisonous cotton-mouth moccasins into Lake Wateree.

Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.
