Dear Editor:

Thanks to Rhonda Koenig of Frankville for writing the letter to the editor I should have submitted long ago. Her scathing report on conditions at Decorah's sole laundromat is a correct description of what I encounter each time I am forced to use that facility.

Unfortunately, her use of words like "filthy place" and "pigsty" are not over the top. Lack of competition is no excuse for maintaining such a dismal place of business.
