Schwab understands the threat to our democracy

I have long been a reader of Sid Schwab’s column. Every Saturday morning I open the Herald and start with my weekly dose of Dr. Schwab.

SId Schwab is one of the few columnists in either The Herald or the Seattle Times that understands the depth of the threats to our democracy, our government we have depended upon for over 225 years. He needs to continue ringing the bell. Not enough people are paying attention.

Diversity of opinion is critical for a healthy discourse. Thank you for including Dr. Schwab.
