Larsen quoted on Growlers

This is a spot on summation ["Grounding the Growlers," editorial, Weekly News, July 17]. I got the chance to ask our Congressman Larsen once “We can’t afford to educate our children, we can’t afford to do anything for our homeless people, we don’t have the money to supply adequate healthcare to our population, and we can’t afford to protect our environment, yet we have trillions to spend on defense. Then what, precisely, are we defending?”
He stuttered a couple of seconds then launched into “well you know that there’s this crazy guy in North Korea and we need to . . . .”
Right then one of his handlers cut the Q & A short and he said “I guess I gotta go.”
