My compliments to The Seattle Times for (“Portraits,” Jan. 20). The execution was a sensitively written piece by Tyrone Beason accompanied by a beautifully unique photograph by Betty Udesen that perfectly expressed the subject, the art and artist, Kimber Fisher.

Some people might feel this content in the newspaper to be “stuff and fluff,” but to me it is the “stuff of life.”

Nice job. Thank you,

— Eric Madsen, Lynnwood

Seafood for thought

What to do in light of the news that Ivar Haglund’s childhood home is not preserved as a historical landmark (“Restore vs. Raze,” Jan. 13)?

Simple: Keep clam.

— David Schwartz, Seattle
