Other things to worry about

It is nice to see a local citizen so concerned with the image
of the Snoqualmie Valley as Ms. Anita Florence was in [the Jan.
18] paper. In her letter to the editor, Ms. Florence wrote that she
was "outraged" at the name of a new, local espresso bar. However,
I don't recall ever seeing a letter from her in the past few months
in which she expressed opposition to the development of Falls
Crossing, a development that, from what I understand, would
deface the beauty of Snoqualmie Falls. Perhaps Ms. Florence should
get her priorities straight. There are much greater things to
She also wonders how the local government could have
allowed this. She is right to question how this could've
happened. Just how did this fall through the cracks? I'm sure the
government of the People's Republic of China would never have allowed this
to happen, nor would the former government of the Union of
Soviet Socialist Republics.
Personally, I do not buy much espresso or other coffee
drinks. But in the future, if I wish to buy some, I will be a patron of the
Bad Ass Coffee Co. I encourage others, coffee drinkers and
non-coffee drinkers alike, to support free speech by doing the same.
