Seattle Times letters to the editor

Local advocates from ‘Hutch,’ UW lobby on sequestration cuts in D.C.

Groups should be more creative

So John Clark, chairman of biological structure department at the University of Washington School of Medicine, fears sequestration may force him to lay off just one researcher from his lab [“ ‘Hutch,’ UW descend on D.C. to lobby on sequestration cuts,” NWMonday, March 25]?

I have two suggestions: Humbly submit a request to the UW endowment of $2.1 billion, or just do it the way the Dawgs are building the new stadium — from private donation.

Be creative Dr. Clark. Think outside the box, both biologically and fiscally.

–Mark Wilson, Seattle
