Letter to Seattle Times Brings to Mind a Edwin Starr Song

To save money, Seattle libraries closed one week. (Seattle Times, 9/4/2011)

Excerpt: It is a profound and tragic commentary on our society when trillions of dollars are squandered on wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia, and the Seattle Public Library is forced to close for a week — reportedly to save $650,000 from its $50 million budget [“Seattle libraries closed this week to save money,”, Aug. 29].
