Dear Editor:

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”

The first words of “The column I didn’t want to write,” by Jim Taylor (Okanagan Weekend, Aug. 31.)

Again, Taylor has hit the bull’s-eye in this column. He has a way of waking us all up, when we have been lulled to sleep by the “political word wizards.”

Taylor has a way of putting his thoughts on paper that makes us think. We know they are our thoughts, too, but we do not have the guts to put them into print.

Well done, Jim Taylor. Now, for the rest of us … wake up and smell the roses, while there are still roses to smell.

Bill Peckham
