Jack Hamilton’s ideology is an inadequate substitute for knowledge

  • Oct 23, 2008 at 11:33PM

Jack Hamilton’s Sound-Off (“The end is not near (except for some government officials), Oct. 4) was more off the mark than soundly on it. If nothing else, Mr. Hamilton showed once again that ideology is an inadequate substitute for what was once described as profound knowledge.

Bremerton coach Lance McCoy put it best. “That’s as much a heartbreaker as I’ve been involved in in years,” McCoy said, somberly. Olympic edged the Lady Knights soccer team 1-0 at Silverdale Stadium Tuesday, scoring in the 77th minute to break a stalemate and steal a win.

Rossi’s economic policy is scary

  • Oct 25, 2008 at 12:00AM

Rossi isn’t as stupid as Bush, he is, however, a Bush-style economic conservative who would rather see bridges fall into the river than know he has paid $1 more for maintenance. These guys’ economic policies are scary. By contrast, having spoken with Gov. Gregoire at Legislative Days, I found her very impressive.

Vote yes on Initiative 1000

  • Oct 25, 2008 at 12:00AM

When you’re 30 years old feeling young and virile it is easy to feel offended that someone would seriously consider their own suicide. It’s easy to feel self-righteous, sanctimonious and above such a religiously offensive idea.

GOP’s bag of dirty tricks

  • Oct 25, 2008 at 12:00AM
