FROM TODAY'S SEATTLE TIMES:

I saw " 'A national bridge problem' " [Local News, Aug. 3], concerning the state of disrepair of our state's bridges. No doubt true, but it seems our illustrious governor has other priorities, such as providing free health care to the children of illegal immigrants.

Let's see — $50 million per year, two-thirds of which goes to children of those unlawfully here — while we wait for a bridge to collapse and kill dozens of citizens who paid taxes to fix it.

Interesting priorities.

— Ed Nichols, Bellevue

Old Ed here, probably thinks it is just fine
to bomb children in Iraq too, just let em lay
there and die if they're not citizens, right Ed?

You wanna BET this guy's a "Christian"?
AMERICA, the greatest tightest country in the world!

No child should ever grow un-nurtured or unloved. No child. Anywhere. Ever.

I don't know "Ed", and therefore would not attempt to second-guess his affiliation or agenda. But he sure could use a few lessons in humanity.

Thanks Anne. Sorry, sometimes I just get so angry...or is it sad? Might be.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
