My congratulations to Staff Sgt. Steven R. Breedlove for an excellent letter regarding the proposed TransCanada pipeline (Reader Input, Sept. 12). Tar sands represents a catastrophic threat to communities, climate and our planet. The pipeline would transport the dirtiest of petroleum fuels all the way to Texas refineries. It would not lower gas prices as it is the most expensive oil to refine. Thank you for participating in the sit-in at the White House on Aug. 31. You are a true patriot. Roger Perkins, Auburn
