E-mail sent after his October 23, 2006 column in The Oregonian

I generally enjoy reading your columns and almost look forward to them (along with Back Fence). I believe it was you who noted how developers get away from paying for schools that their developments need. I am personally against this situation because I used to live in Salem, where a good portion of a bond measure was used to build new schools, even though I lived in a century-old house whose previous owners had probably already paid for the neighborhood’s schools.

If you have further issues, I invite you to go to the ground-breaking tomorrow and ask about them.
