themselves with their submission. Send articles to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Diversity — Left and Right
There have been recent letters and
comment in NWLawyer about diversity. Diversity is not diversity these days
but a code word for fidelity to left wing
politics, the Democratic Party, the New
York Times philosophy, whatever amalgam of left-oriented political views you
would like to name. Real diversity is a
frictional colloquy with Republicans,
conservatives and federalists, whatever
amalgam you like. This is a political issue, not a first amendment issue, so it
isn’t necessary to say just how diverse
the WSBA should be, looking both to the
left and the right. We have now a deep
schism today between people of the left
and right. Real diversity means closing
that schism and saving our country.
