In response to Lynda Olsen's letter to the editor: I agree with you and thanks for voicing your opinion. The cheer that you have attempted to spread is that of the friend I remember and cherished so deeply. A bright light during times of what ironically has become for most people a rather dismal time of year. I too have noticed that a majority of letters written to the editor seem to be just one more opportunity to criticize each other.
I just want to take Lynda up on her challenge and wish "the good people of Juneau," as she so wisely put it, a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year! Thank you Lynda, for speaking out against the negativity - you always were good at that!
