G.E. and the PCB's

To the Editor: 

General Electric's takeover of Honeywell International (Week in Review, Oct. 29) is an amazing tribute to the talents of G.E.'s chairman, John F. Welch. The overnight acquisition of Honeywell, a $45 billion company, stands in stark contrast to the 20-year battle to remove the million pounds of toxic PCB's that G.E. dumped into the Hudson River.

One can only hope that Mr. Welch sees the error of G.E.'s ways and applies his leadership talents to restoring the upper Hudson River. Anything less will blemish his stellar tenure.
