51st state

Mr. Rob Chase (“51st state would represent us better”) might be happier moving his Liberty Lake residence about six miles to the east. There, the “us” he longs for is to be found in abundance. There, he would be free to associate with those who share his values. Here, we value every person: our education and health. We value our diversity. We value the land and water that sustains us. All of us.

James Murphy
