'Smooth ride' was misdirected

Your Vol. 26, No. 6 edition headline is misdirected. The real "smooth ride" was for the voters who voted for Tim Eyman's 747 initiative. How about our elected representatives revealing an honest account (not ENRON accountants) of how much revenue comes from each rental on King County property? Consider for instance the emergency and cellular phone tower and poplar tree farms on the old King County dump (Duvall land fill).
   These rentals should increase according to the property tax increases including levies.
