Rain Forest Won't Attract Visitors

Building the rain forest is a bad idea ("Project e-mail not so 'heat of the moment,'" Dec. 3). Who is going to come to Iowa to see a rain forest? Most people associate Iowa with corn or prairies, and I don't think that people would come to the largest corn-producing state to see a rain forest.

We are using money that could be going toward some sort of deer reservation or something like that. I just think that this whole project is a waste of time and money.
