Letter: Olympia is a cesspool



After reading the Jan. 16 paper, I was shocked to see, unlike the other 49 states, Washington has five branches of government. Of course we have the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches, but it seems we also have the Bureaucracy and now Boeing branches as well.

Olympia is a cesspool, and the sad thing is that all the regular folks are paying Olympic-sized taxes, so that all of our masters can have a swim.
