Pine tree blocks Olerud view, lowers value of house

Quit obsessing over a tree

John Olerud, get a life. Look around you. There are people living on the streets instead of a warm, comfortable home. Are you aware of how many people lost their homes due to the wrath of Sandy?

Be grateful for what you have and quit obsessing over a tree [“Olerud’s appraisal says tree cuts value of house,” NWWednesday,” Nov. 7]. You should be ashamed of yourself. If you don't like the tree then move.

— Cynthia Dwyer, Sammamish
