'A Thought Experiment'



Regarding Jerry Rohde's column "This Land is Their Land" in the Sept. 1 NCJ:

As a thought experiment, consider if those of us who are descended from colonists, settlers and immigrants stopped reproducing. Not impossible since birth control has been legal for over 50 years.

Then the indigenous American Indians could finally retake the continent in only two or three generations. After 500 years. Of course, all new immigration would have to end also.

Just a thought experiment.

Carman Gentile, Arcata
