    Dear Ms Greene,

    Thank you for your coverage of Hanford's leaking tanks of radioactive waste, and, most importantly, for not forgetting the Downwinders in your coverage of Hanford related issues.

    As one of those health-impacted Downwinders, having lost my father to thyroid cancer, my mother to malignant melanoma, and my own thyroid to a precancerous nodule and autoimmune thyroiditis, your coverage gives me hope and lets me know we are not forgotten.
