And gets caught!
Letters From The Editor
In the Sept. 8 letters, as well as all over the local nightly news, David Dilworth repeatedly says without attribution:
“University of California insect scientists tell us that the huge Santa Cruz infestation areas could not have occurred in just a few months. The moth has probably been here for years — and done little noticeable damage.”
Well, here, with attribution, is what UC actually says:
“The moth, a native of Australia, had never before been found in North America until it was identified in the San Francisco Bay Area in February.” Here’s the attribution: www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/NEWS/light_brown_apple_moth-news.html
Don’t believe a thing this uneducated attention whore says. He cannot back it up, let alone know that an “insect scientist” is called an Entomologist.
