Letters to the Editor

Clueless in Seattle: writer fails to connect dots | Letters

Park. Park. Who is this Park?

She didn’t say, although in her letter printed in the Journal on Dec. 5, “Useful info about writers revealed”, pg. 6, she hammered two other letter writers for not listing their bona fides.

But thanks to the diligence of the editor we find she is a Seattle boating enthusiast who has visited these parts for the past 40 years.

She said that The Friends of the San Juans “. . . seem to have drifted to extreme environmentalism . . .”.  Well, this is a place to be extremely environmental about, and it shows, at least so far.

Could that be the reason she so often fled Seattle for the delights of our ports-of-call? It has taken 40 years and she still hasn’t made the connection. Some people are simply clueless.
