LETTER TO THE EDITOR | A proposed sign of the times

To the editor:

Just months after the beautiful five and six year olds were gunned down in Newtown, Conn., like ducks at a carnival, someone thought it was OK to open a gun store next to our Island pharmacy.

What’s going on? This is a peaceful place that kept Walmart at bay and McDonald’s out but we let in a gun store!

This seems too completely strange to be true. Perhaps we should hang a sign, “Welcome to South Whidbey — now graced by our own gun store — a progressive community.”
