Journal of the San Juan Islands


Half-truth as good as a lie; shame on you Journal, and letter writer too | Letters

It is disappointing that the Journal provided the space and the title: GSA's bureaucratic blunder that was as full of errors of omission as that "Open Letter to Congressman Larson."

The executive order in question relating to space acquisition states in Section 1-103 that: Except where such selection is otherwise prohibited, the process for meeting Federal space needs in urban areas shall give first consideration to a centralized community business area and adjacent areas of similar character, including other specific areas which may be recommended by local officials.

Section 1-105(c) further states that one of the considerations is: Acquisition or utilization of existing privately owned facilities.

In journalism, a half truth is as good as a lie. The Journal and Ms. Hanson should be ashamed.
