Sir: What a joy it was to come to the end of the Independent on this dull Monday, 4 March. After the daily dose of deaths, treachery, secret deals, car bombings, rapists, jailings, trapped victims, etc, etc, I stumbled on that day-saving article.

The "wild rice" Indians of Wisconsin are doing something right and have been doing so for the past 100 years.

They have shown Mr Paleface that logging can be profitable. Yes, millions of bucks per annum, without destroying the environment. It would appear that they will be able to continue in the same vein for the next 100 years. They key word was "sustainable".

At last, some journalistic proof that it is still just about politically correct to be human.
