Mary Jane Martinez wrote that she is proud of her home state of New York for banning fracking and wishes that Texas were like New York. (See: "Fracking ban," Tuesday)

I moved here from Connecticut and think Texas is great just the way it is.

The last thing I would want is for Texas to become another New York or Connecticut.

I would be proud of Mary if she moved back to New York and persuaded that state and the "we don't want anything in our back yard" people in Connecticut to stop using natural gas and save it for the rest of us.
