Lyons did the right thing

  Dear HCN,


I understand why Stephen J. Lyons moved to Washington state. I don't understand why he didn't do it sooner (HCN, 3/16/98). Here in Arizona we have the same problem. Many people move here (mostly from California) and discover that they hate it because of our "bad welfare system, conservative politics, low wages, poor indigent care, bad roads," etc., etc., ad nauseum. The problem I have with all of this is that Arizona is filling up with people who hate to be here, and they won't leave.


I would be most happy to assist in their departure, especially if they would take real estate salesmen with them. Thanks for the opportunity to rant and rave.
