Nice news in story of man who has recovered identity
Editor, The Times:
The Seattle Times has published a great series of stories on Edward Lighthart, the man who woke up in Seattle's Discovery Park and couldn't remember who he was ["Mystery of man's identity apparently solved," page one, Aug. 21]. Many thanks to reporters Ian Ith, Craig Welch and Susan Gilmore as well as The Times.
This is the nicest news story I've read anywhere in quite a while.

Shellshocked with disappointment in Obama
I think I know who Jon Doe is ["Who is this man?" page one, Aug. 20]. He's a guy who voted for that "hope and change" guy Barack Obama, and he just woke up to realize what he got -- an even less transparent and more coercive government.
And the shock is so overwhelming that he lost his bearings and is denying reality.
-- Bruce Martin, Bainbridge Island
