Seattle Times letters to the editor

April 22, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Tacoma Dome rented to fill one job

A waste of taxpayer money

If there is a single barometer of what’s wrong in America, it has to be that the government needs to rent the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall to fill one job and that a journalist can see nothing wrong with that [“1,400 apply: ‘I was the lucky one,'” NW Tuesday, April 21]. Why should taxpayers have to pay for that?

For just a meter reader!

— Gerald Petz, Sammamish
