Thank you to The Olympian Newspaper for the big block letter headline and above the fold front page weekend coverage!
We love you! We only wish that next time the article will include a clear and concise analysis to connect the dots between Wall Street style predatory economics and the variety of social ills we have experienced, everything ranging from houselessness to violent crime to disease.
update: I moved this from the book outline "Unpublished Letters to the Editor of The Olympian" to the book outline "Letters The Olympian refused to print" because the latter book outline is newer, even though it is unclear why the letter has not been printed (nor published online.)
update 2: more information about the protest and prosecution of our acts: protest trial tomorrow
Here's an unpublished letter to the editor of The Olympian. It was submitted on the 2nd of May.
"Johnson was arrested after a Thurston County sheriff’s K9, Rex, found a wallet belonging to Stark..."

Letter to the Editor by Anne Fischel in today's Olympian about community divisions and polarization surrounding the conflict in Israel/Palestine: http://www.theolympian.com/2010/09/30/1386814/some-lives-more-valued.html. Anne's letter is important because it testifies to predisposed polarization—polarization that has been present previous to the OFC boycott.
I submitted a letter of interest to serve on the Editorial Board of The Olympian. I was not selected.
Here's the letter (with an additional intro as posted in a facebook note):
In responce to an article about an arson fire at the new city hall.
Dear Mr. Le Masurier
I write to object to four words in the reportage of the recent arson fire at the new city hall.
“It’s a rough neighborhood.” he (Rick Dougherty) said.
The statement is demonstrably untrue but more to the point it re-enforces the negative stereotypes about downtown. Hundreds of people from all walks of life are actively collaborating to create vibrant, exciting and attractive downtown. Throwaway lines like the one I’ve cited above nullify the hundreds of hours of our work in mere seconds.
I am not asking the Olympian to paint an endlessly rosy portrait of downtown. There are real issues that deserve, nay demand, objective, critical coverage but all too often I find your paper’s coverage of downtown Olympia fall into three stereotypes:
· Downtown is dying economically.
· Downtown is unsafe.
· Downtown is filled with vagrants.
