Letters to the Editor

Clear and present danger

To the editor:While the coronavirus ravages China and seriously threatens other parts of the world with contagion, the U.S. has, thus far, been well insulated from deep penetration by the new bug.Our country and our people are facing a much larger threat than the coronavirus invasion. For many ...

Biden needs to step up

To the editor:I would like Jim Clyburn and those who support Joe Biden to know that many Americans -- middle-class, poor, minority, immigrants, those religions that have been targeted by governments and extremists, etc.-- have been waiting for Joe Biden to come to their defense.?I wish someone ...

Destroying America

To the editor:Abraham Lincoln warned us that "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we lose our freedoms it will be because we have destroyed ourselves from within."Now, 160 years later, we stand on the brink of having President Lincoln's warning coming to fruition.Fueled by an ...

The lure of money

To the editor:We are entertained daily by the news outlets that someone is going to jail because of illegal activities involving money.Money is a true attractor of interest for men and women alike.

Save the panthers

To the editor:Seven panthers killed on Florida roads and no Florida Highway Patrol efforts in sight.Why do they not reduce the speed limit to 25 m.p.h. in panther habitat areas? Put more patrol personnel, state, county and local, to patrol the panther corridors?Environmental organizations and ...

Impeachment reeked

To the editor:For more than three years the Democrats exhausted the nation with a spectacle that was boring, simple minded, disruptive and expensive. Instead of doing their jobs for the benefit of the nation, the House of Representatives was hijacked by the likes of Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, ...

Bias against Trump has deep roots

To the editor:The Democrats and fake news have manufactured animus toward our president. That is proven by those who dislike Trump but cannot explain why in terms of his role and accomplishments as a president.Consider that the animus was alive even at the 2011 prayer breakfast and long before ...

A modern president?

To the editor:When I think of the word, "modern" I think of "improvement" over what has previously existed, and Donald Trump is clearly not an improvement.A president is supposed to be a leader, and exhibit those endearing qualities associated with a sophisticated leader; qualities which elude ...
