Letters to the Editor

Anti-OLF campaign will eventually fizzle out | Letters


In response to Ken Pickard’s latest psychoanalysis theme I was impressed that he did not blame his parents or grandparents for his predicament.

I thought he would first go after the culprits from whom he inherited his wealth and sue them first because they allowed Outlying Field Coupeville near his inheritance.

I also would like to compliment Mr. Pickard on bringing in the “danger zone” premise to his theme. He is correct that an airplane may crash on his house, but I think he has a better chance of getting hit in the new 45 mph zone in Coupeville.

If he and his “100 at-large constituents” are successful down the road in closing OLF Coupeville and with it maybe NAS Whidbey good on them.

I would think the next project would be to show the millions of dollars that Ebey’s Reserve and the huge amount of weddings that will be performed at Crockett Farms will sustain the island’s economy.

Mr. Pickard, just like the other very small membership in his band, will continue to get the headlines, but, I think, just like every other 15-minutes-of-fame personalities, citizens will get tired of the performance and move on.
