I-1000 opponents: Please stop accessing (?) the wrong guy…

The Coalition Against Assisted Suicide sent out a note this morning thanking "members of the media for permanently refraining from accessing KVI's John Carlson for Coalition information."


It turns out that some folks are confusing retired health care executive John Carlson -- the guy heading up the coalition -- with conservative talk-radio host and former Republican gubernatorial candidate John Carlson.

"When I e-mailed KVI's Carlson, he said `Yeah, I've been getting some calls" from reporters, said the coalition's newly hired Cyndie Ulrich.

But wait, there's more. The coalition also has a volunteer co-chairman in Spokane named Chris Carlson.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
