Response to Negative Article about Surveyors

from Carl Baca PLS NV/CA

From April 6: Mr. Pat Shannan, Editor
Independent News International

Dear Sir,
This letter is a response to the article written by Will Goode and published in the US~Observer in Edition 2 #38 in 2015 and entitled:"Monuments move, landowners lose: A surveyor's dirty little secret"

As a Professional Land Surveyor licensed in two states since 1987 and someone who believes that the profession of Land Surveying is made up mostly of individuals of the highest moral fiber, I take personal affront to nearly everything contained in that nasty ad hominem piece. The very title gives away the prejudice of an author taking potshots at an honorable group of practitioners.
I would suggest to Mr. Goode that adopting the moniker "Investigative Reporter" carries a responsibility to avail himself of certain facts and regarding the profession of Land Surveying, he has clearly failed to do so. Goode has painted all surveyors with a broad brush of inflammatory accusation rather than limiting his commentary to certain specific individuals involved in a certain ongoing northern Idaho boundary dispute. Don't believe me? Read the comments by readers that follow the article. read this entire article more
