Letter from the Editor
What a glorious spring! How lucky we are to live in such delightful surroundings. The Pacific Northwest is a gardener's delight, full of fertile soil and scenic beauty. Our own Concordia campus is a wonderful example of the exciting variety of blooms, blossoms, greenery, and landscaping that can be achieved here. It's such a treat to walk around campus and observe the many plants, lovingly tended by our grounds crew, all wildly blooming and sweetly scented. Your eye strays from one blossom to another ...to the ivy-covered brick walls...what a great oak tree...look, there's a daffodil next to a...cigarette butt? Can you believe it? Somebody just threw their cigarette right there on the ground—right next to the ashtray! In fact, the whole ground here is strewn thick with cigarette butts—how gross!
We have a beautiful campus here—don't ruin it by throwing your butts or other trash on the ground. Clean up after yourself! And if you see someone littering, get right in their face and demand they clean it up. We do not have maid service at Concordia!
