LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Trip to Phoenix seems, well, fishy


I'm going to miss Andy Rooney from the "60 Minutes" program. He's always had a way of speaking truth to power so easily.

So ... in the spirit of Andy, let me ask: Did you ever notice that sometimes if it smells like a fish and it looks like a fish, maybe it's just a fish?

Now, with that smell of fish in mind. How could our Walla Walla Port director and two sitting Port commissioners fly to Phoenix for a long weekend getaway, all stay at the director's condo, then roughly a month later, those same commissioners give that same director a nearly $5,000 raise?

How could they not think their actions might be viewed ... well, fishy?

Maybe it is time to air out the Port of Walla Walla.
