Whatever happened to “Can’t we all get along?” | Letters

Okay, I need to speak up again. This whole “election” for San Juan County Public Hospital District Board candidates is feeling like Washington D.C. signs everywhere, slates for candidates, political party backing, public forums and lots of polarized factions that don’t subscribe to my L.A. buddy, Rodney King, “Can’t we all get along?”

Whatever happened to going to lunch with someone, sitting over the table and looking someone in the eye? Who has a different opinion and listening to one another a lot can be said for “tones in voice, non­verbal clues, truly being present with someone to understand and communicate and learn … Enough from me.
