I think I ay have started something. After the initial letter to the editor (LTTE), someone responded and I responded in turn. Since then, other people have written LTTEs in support of the power plant. I can't say for sure if my letters inspired them to write their own, but it's certainly a possibility. The local paper has had lots of coverage of the opposition to the plant (which involves in part a high school biology teacher recruiting his students for the cause, which is really underhanded), so it's cool that people are starting to voice their support.
