Having joined with about 5,000 local residents and folks from states where fracking for natural gas has destroyed their water, air and health, I was disappointed to find no report on the July 28 “Stop the frack attack” event in The Post.

The protest on the lawn of the Capitol was followed by a march, which was impossible to miss as it filled the streets, to the offices of the American Petroleum Institute. Surely an issue of this importance — basically the future of natural gas obtained through fracking — that affects so many people warrants coverage.

I’m not asking for color pictures above the fold on Page A1, as granted to the alleged Aurora gunman, but such a protest merits at least a mention somewhere.
