Sitnews - Stories In The News - Ketchikan, Alaska - Opinions



By Lynne Miller


July 15, 2005

It is never dull to read the Letters to the Editor on Sitnews - and it never should be limited to only like minded opinion on any given topic, in my opinion. Sitnews exists because if you care about the DIVERSITY of the population of your community, you should never want your thought processes to stop you from inquiring as to what the opinion on topics is of your neighbor or your neighbor's neighbor. For many of us the reality of the bridge (and/or bridges) is a very hurtful one - a issue that resonates painfully as we look out over the water and imagine the very geography of our little part of the world CHANGED FOREVER on a wish and a prayer of a "promised" economic outcome "some day". Some of us are just not reeled in easily by "suspect" promises of MONEY. We may be the minority, we may have already publicly testified and written our legislators and wished an otherwise outcome - but our opinion, on Sitnews and anywhere else still matters - and should still be a respectful consideration for our neighbors to hold onto - whether we agree with each other or not.
