Letters to the Editor
As one who is against the policy of nation building, it is refreshing that Donald Trump pointed out just how stupid and costly the policy has been. He is absolutely right in that policies should put America and Americans first. Far too much of our treasury has been wasted on interfering in other nations' affairs.

I'm surprised that the Bellevue Reporter devoted an entire article to what Kemper Freeman, a wealthy shopping mall developer, thinks about rapid transit and transportation.
I was just informed by the Coalition of Eastside Neighborhoods for Sensible Energy (CENSE) that city of Bellevue planners dropped alternative 2B from the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). While I am not a rabid person trying to stand in the way of needed progress, I like to think I am a rational thinker able to weigh the pros and cons of corporate/governmental entity initiatives, cull out bluster and non-data backed assertions and arguments and make an intelligent decision based on facts. My background managing large operations analysis and system engineering efforts for 20 years in the corporate world (after having been a flyer and program manager for engineering and test for a major weapons system in the Air Force for 25 years) will allow me to do nothing else.
Once again, Mr. Freeman is leading in common sense and a transportation plan that will work for our region. The recent survey by the transportation folks was one-sided. When asked which things I would support, I was not given the option to say "none of the above."
With the 47th annual observance of Earth Day this week, now is a great time to explore more effective ways of slowing climate change and conserving earth's natural resources for future generations.
