A letter writer says harmony between the U.S. and Russia is the answer.
I’ve always enjoyed the sprightly writing of Nikki Silverstein, and as a resident for 20 years appreciated her “Savvy in Sausalito” (Feb. 13). In what was a fairly exhaustive list of local eateries, I was surprised and sad that she skipped the friendliest and one of the best, the Anchorage 5 on Gate 5 Road across from Heath Ceramics. The very first customer review I pulled up on Yelp said it well: “Really great, quality food with a nice small-town feel.” Not to mention classical music, sunny booths on a window wall and the caring hospitality of owners Regina and Luis. And here’s my tip, order the huevos montañas or the best corned beef hash on the planet.

I am disturbed, disappointed and frightened that so many mainstream Americans continue to place all responsibility for the dangerous rivalry between the United States and Russia on the shoulders of Vladimir Putin. The future of humanity is in grave danger from the ongoing destructive competition between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union. It should be obvious to almost everyone who follows the events of the world that unless the United States and Russia are able to change this dangerous and hundred-year-old rivalry into a more friendly and cooperative relationship, ridding the world of nuclear weapons will never be possible. In addition, without this marked improvement in our relationship, stopping the progression of global warming will also remain a virtual impossibility.
Clearly humankind’s only real hope for our long-term survival on this planet requires that both we Americans and the Russians can somehow manage to end our hostile relations and move into a new era of genuine peace and harmony.
I hope that this change becomes possible. And every sacrifice in our excessive national pride will be a small price to pay for saving the entire human race from total destruction.
