This is response to Don Stevens letter "A monstrosity." (Oct. 24, Our Readers Write.) "This community thinks" he states. He is encluding me when he says community and I don't want him speaking for me. I live in the community of Hood River and have for 55 years and please do not include me any any of your decisions. Next time just speak for yourself Don. Now on to Tom Hons (Oct. 24). He uses, in his letter against Wal-Mart, the word "we" six times. Does he have a mouse in his pocket? If so, he should have signed his letter that way, again this man is speaking for all persons when he uses the word we. Please do not include me in your articles for or against anything. Speak for yourself only, if someone else in your life thinks like you do then have them sign your letter also. I am so tired of these people speaking for me. This is the second letter to this effect I have mailed to this paper. Do any of you read others' letters? Got it yet.
