The last few weeks have been depressing with the direction our country is moving. However, we read a letter to the editor (Courier-Herald, Feb. 8) from Dr. David Schumer from Auburn.
There was an irony in recent letters to the editor (Feb. 8) that was not lost on me. One was appalled at the apparently foregone conclusion that there would soon be 10 million uninsured people in our country (repealing Obamacare), while the other seemed to suggest we continue to indiscriminately let hundreds of thousands of uninsured people into our country?
There is a small restaurant on 6th Avenue in Tacoma called the Southern Kitchen. It is African-American owned and been there for decades.
The city is supposed to insure and indemnify and protect employees and officers for any act performed while doing their duty. We need this protection for our council members.
By writing this letter, I am speaking up to encourage an examination of two recent immigration decisions either being considered or already made by President Trump.
The Senate will soon hold hearings to determine if Georgia Congressman Tom Price will be our country’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services. As HHS Secretary, this cabinet position has a direct impact on how the Trump Administration prioritizes the fight to end Alzheimer’s, a cause close to my heart.
Not having been in attendance at any of the meetings but having seen similar situations play out, I’d like to offer a couple of comments on what I have read in your columns and letters to the editor.

Recently Yarrow Bay/Oak Pointe spent money on a favor for the Mayor to file a lawsuit against the city of Black Diamond, which she was glad about. Since when does a mayor welcome a lawsuit against her own city?
…or anyday etiquette.
The wonderful thing to come out of all this is a profoundly new appreciation for the helpfulness and kindness of our police.
I don’t believe in PolitiFacts, fact finding groups or any polls.
A previous letter (Courier-Herald, Sept. 21) gave us an overview of the tax environment in the Washington State mentioning the upcoming ballot wherein Sound Transit is floating a $54 billion initiative to extend their train and transit system.
In a well-known book, "People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil" (1983), psychiatrist M. Scott Peck explored the nature of evil from his distinctly religious as well as psychological perspective.
This election cycle, the state Senate, Legislature and gubernatorial election is vital to your pocketbook.
Your letter moved me. Especially your heavy heart.
As Benjamin Disraeli or Mark Twain stated, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." The following statistics may cause more glazed eyes than doughnuts at the local bakery, but here goes.
