Letter: Takeover of Pearson is a waste



It's curious how the government can never identify its own wasteful spending.

Down at Pearson Field, there's the carcass of a lovely little museum, killed by a federal official who must now squander tax dollars trying to reanimate the corpse. Whatever the bill comes to, we know it will be more than the zero she was spending before blitzing this community asset. That sounds like the ideal sequester cut to me.

But alas! Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Superintendent Tracy Fortmann assures us she'll be axing the summer interns and fee collectors before loosening her grip on Pearson.
