Seattle Times letters to the editor

Seattle poop-scoop citation

Pick your battles

You give nearly your whole front page for a ridiculous story [“Dog owner says rules stink,” page one, Jan. 15] and picture when hundreds of people are getting killed in Gaza? When we have a historic inauguration coming? Not to mention that this story appears to make this dog owner, Steve Guiling’s, problem into something that should be taken seriously?

I live next to Discovery Park and I can tell you there is so much poop and so many off-leash dogs that it is disgusting. In fact, we hardly go there anymore as a result. The off-leashers and the non-poop-picker-uppers are always indignant. I don’t have any sympathy for Mr. Guiling and I’m glad he has to pay for breaking the law.

Please, don’t use your front page for stories like this — it is beneath The Seattle Times to do so. I will now turn my attention to more important matters in our world.

— Jeanne Bremer, Seattle
