Letters: Can’t complain about the weather

Local gripping displaced by warm summer weather and sunshine

Since the weather has become non-Sooke like (and divine), I must find other subjects of complaint, targets of convenience, as our government has covertly termed invasive/abrasive actions, incidents/opinions.

Are we awaiting a fatality before a traffic circle is installed at the entrance to Shoppers, Western Foods, the medical center, and others?  Traffic circles have been around since covered wagon days: not exactly an unknown concept, and while cheaper in the long run and more attractive than streetlights, it could be a thing of beauty — with possibly a flag or pinnace denoting our nationalism from a centrally mounted pole.

Oh, and what about the bloody vermin-ridden deer that consume our gardens in a time when we are encouraged to economize and grow our own local veggies?

Is there a culling program, or must we wait for the natural seven-year disease die-off?

Mayhap some naturalist source could furnish them with lemming lessons, but then that would reduce the tick count, weakening the “natural selection” pattern.

Oh, and one more item: a gripe actually against people who cross at the flash-equipped crosswalks — without pressing the button, busy with their cellphone, book, and in a lot of instances, muttering incoherently to themselves while they casually stroll  the bumper zone?

Help me understand!
