Seattle Times letters to the editor

New M’s skipper

Wakamatsu article appreciated

Thank you, Jerry Brewer and The Seattle Times, for a great article [“A phenomenal legacy,” page one, April 5] and a feel for what “news” can be.

I saw the headline about murdered kids [“5 kids slain in Graham,” page one, April 5] and said to myself, “I am going to cancel this paper.” I am so tired of papers and television mistaking the reporting of murder and mayhem as news. We create the emotional context for our lives by what we choose to celebrate.

Thank you for celebrating the courage, humor, talent, toughness, humility and humanity of the Wakamatsu family.

— David C Hall, Seattle
