Letter to the Editor: Relax on the Zen Taxi Ride

Every week I look forward to reading the grassroots, from the heart, God Bless America column called and#8220;Grasshopper Soup,and#8221; published in the Sierra Sun.

Mr. Sweigert, the columnist, writes his piece out of passion for the Truckee/Tahoe area and America in general and not ideology, which most people in the public eye seem to lean toward even if it’s simply a letter to the editor.

We all moved to the Truckee/Tahoe area for one reason or another and#8212; lifestyle, jobs, recreation, doing our and#8220;own thingand#8221;! Remember being on and#8220;Tahoe Time?and#8221;

Now it seems as though the country’s problems have found us up here in our slice of

paradise. Vouchers, IOUs, repos, layoffs, recalls and budget cuts are on everyone’s mind.

If more readers took a and#8220;Zen Taxi Rideand#8221; through the Sierra every week in Mr. Sweigert’s column, instead of plowing through his paragraphs seeing only this side or that side, we as a community might learn something about each other and get back to the and#8220;Tahoe Timeand#8221; spirit that drew us here in the first place.
