Thumbs up to the Kirkland City Council for supporting climate change initiatives. Thumbs down to the Kirkland Reporter for the curious addition of an out of context paragraph referencing a recent study by Johnstone and Mantua published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS 2014 111(40) 14360-14365).

Mr. Smith should take a step back and accept the fact: Guns don't kill people; people do. His overzealous reference to "outright warfare hardware" and suggestion that such free speech (advertising a legal product) should be restricted - even 'voluntarily prohibited' - by the Reporter, are downright Orwellian.

  • Nov 11, 2014 at 6:00AM

I must beg to differ with Steve Hirsh of Bothell who supports the minimum wage [as printed in the Nov. 7 issue of the Reporter]. I hate to say it, but belief in the minimum wage is economically illiterate. Sort of like not believing in gravity is scientifically illiterate.

Question of the Day
