To the editor:
We were extremely disappointed that The Dalles Chronicle chose to publish a rambling rant by Marilyn Clifford on Sunday, Aug. 4.
Our city has laws and codes, and people who we ask to do the important job of enforcing them.
To viciously connect these dedicated and civic minded individuals to the ills of our society and imagined conspiracies is incomprehensible. If the editorial staff had applied a little common sense, this letter would have been immediately put in the circular file where it belongs.
Randy and Susan Stewart
