I share Willo Roberts’ concern for a world where children are hungry, old people can’t pay for medications and families are without health insurance protection (“Orca money: Dollars could have met bigger needs,” Tuesday).
But I can’t understand her exception to spending a paltry $100,000 on protecting the living – the whale and the humans in danger from his familiarity – while our president spends $85.5 billion on killing. How many children would that feed? How many old people could get help with their medications? How much family health protection could that provide?
