To the author of last week’s Letter to the Editor (“Daughters: Avoid mining or geology as a career”), I offer my congratulations. Someone has finally the backbone to speak up. I support your thinking. If I had any children, I most certainly would not advise them to go into either geology or mining as a career. There are many other careers that provide much more stability than those affected by the up and down cycles of commodity prices.
