Grace created remarkable charitable institutions, too

To the Editor:

Re: The connection between Granta Nakayama and Grace Co.

If you believe in the Bible and Adam and Eve then everyone in the world is related to everyone else! So you can connect any dots you like and there is a possibility that connivance is possible. It is but also "it ain't"! !

Supreme Court justices must pass a litmus test too but then they turn on the very presidents who appointed them and see things from a liberal or conservative view even though their record is or was otherwise.

The only people who will win in Libby and elsewhere are the trial lawyers. They get their 70-90 percent off the top and the victims get very little. That's what causes companies to go into bankruptcy protection.

Enough for now but I have much more to say in defense of a 150-year-old company that has created remarkable charitable institutions like The Grace Institute founded 107 years ago for example. They trained poor immigrant women pouring into the cities from Europe and gave them education to make a living rather than stay on the streets of the East Coast cities. Today the Grace Institute still survives and is training people for a better life. Check the public records of The Grace Foundation for many more examples.
