LETTER: Pulling teeth and dental puns

Dr. William Saliken on the handicapped parking issue on Hall Street

Re: Handicap access like pulling teeth,” Letters, Dec. 9

First, let me say that I agree with Dr. David Sonnichsen and what he says in his letter about handicap access to services andcare.

But “like pulling teeth?” In my dental career, I found pulling teeth a good service and, in fact, a practice building factor. Rather, the good doctor should have compared getting handicap access to care and services like getting politicians and bureaucrats to do the right thing.

It is my understanding that the City of Nelson has several planners for a population of 10,000 people. And, yet somehow,handicap access was not factored into the project.

At any rate, I remain indentured to Dr. Sonnichsen for putting enough of a bur in my britches to contribute to this composite discussion.
