Letter: May Bonker rest in peace

Don Bonker has died; may he rest in peace. I wonder how this country would be different today had he defeated Patty Murray in their Senate primary all those year ago. The answer, I suspect, is better. I may not have agreed with him on many issues, but he would never have given in to the savage partisanship that features so prominently today, Sen. Murray being no exception.
