In stating that drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will have virtually no effect on oil or gasoline prices (Readers' Forum, Aug. 20), environmentalist Lawson Legate disagrees with Democratic Sen.

No advice from government stewards about what to seek out or what to avoid. No entrance fees and no officially licensed T-shirt.
