Bainbridge Island Review


Let’s get real: Government isn’t all bad | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

This morning I rented a great little hedge clipper from a tool rental shop here on the Island. The guys were griping about the government, as we all should from time to time. I noticed one of us customers had a UW sweatshirt. I mentioned that the government makes that university possible and that two of the three customers in the store could be customers because we were educated at public universities.

Then there were the engineers who designed all the tools that filled the shop. They were Stihl tools so I guess the engineers were educated at German public universities.

Then there were the city roads that got us customers to the store.

We all enjoy griping about the government but we should add up the benefits occasionally.
