We watched, with repulsion, the return of the Bodies exhibit to Seattle this fall. We are offended and disgusted at the disingenuous attempt to disguise the commercial displaying of human bodies as “education.” There are ways to educate the general public about the human body and disease without mining dead bodies for their shock value.

Thank you for the opportunity to speak about the programs and services of the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA). As a national organization with offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., NAPCA was established in Seattle in 1979 as a result of a broad-based, collective effort of community leaders who cared deeply about issues affecting Asian/Pacific Islander seniors.

My sisters Maria and Elizabeth talked about the Sacred Heart Canossian College (SHCC) reunion for quite some time. A fellow SHCC classmate directed me to [Assunta Ng’s] article, “Lessons I took away from my school reunion (issue 48, Nov. 21–27).” [It was] very well done.
Thank you for your letter on Oct. 7, 2009. We certainly value your input and suggestions as we strive to expand and improve our interface with different groups that make up the Asian American community in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
It is a testament to our API community’s evolution and growth that we have different opinions while focusing on common goals relating to the community.

I-1033 brings back previously successful policies passed by the voters. In 1993, during tough economic times, voters approved Initiative 601, which put reasonable limits on government’s fiscal policies. I-601 established a sustainable rate for government to grow, saying it could grow at the inflation rate plus population growth, with faster growth requiring voter approval.
