LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Pistol not needed for lovely Central Whidbey baristas

April 7, 2013 · Updated 1:46 PM

To the editor:

My wife and I were enjoying a breakfast sandwich and latte at a local coffee shop when we were shocked and frightened to see a young man walk in wearing an openly holstered pistol.

While I recognize his lawful right to do that, how sad a commentary it is on our times that this person felt it necessary to protect himself from the lovely baristas. They have always seemed very peaceable to me, and when a mistake was made, I felt no need for a loaded pistol.
