Doesn’t help the matter
I am appalled that you associate the artist Deborah Lawrence, who “is known for her antiwar, anti-torture and feminist views,” as someone who does not feel the Christmas spirit [“Seattle artist’s White House ornament in poor taste,” Editorial, Dec. 3].
Does this mean that if you are pro-war, pro-torture and against equal rights for women, that you do have the Christmas spirit? Oh, be it not so.
I also disagree with the criticism directed at 4Culture. This government organization is staffed with responsive and dedicated individuals who ably support the arts in King County and do so with the highest ethical standards.
If Lawrence’s ornament was in poor taste, The Times commentary about it was even worse.

The Yule decoration offered by Deborah Lawrence to the President George W. Bush White House represented exactly how this 7th District voter feels.
By the way, where was your dudgeon when the Bush White House sent luncheon invitations featuring a Christmas tree to members of the Jewish community?
And furthermore: Three cheers for Justice Richard Sanders.
