Letter to the Editor: Delaware drivers ‘could do better’

Letters to the Editor

This is a commentary regarding my experience driving around Delaware, particularly Kent County. To qualify these comments I’ll point out I am a senior who once drove a sedan 25 to 30,000 miles a year as part of my work. Never had a moving violation and it’s been 60 years since I had a lone […]

Letter to the Editor: Romney a profile in courage

Letters to the Editor

Vice President Mike Pence’s Wall Street Journal (1/17/2020) op-ed snagged my attention. Citing JFK’s 1956 “Profiles In Courage,” Pence claimed to be seeking a person of courage tangled up in the Senate trial of President Trump. Imagine. Seeking a person who would put principles and integrity above personal and political party loyalties to “do impartial […]

Letter to the Editor: Court-martial ahead for Vindman

Letters to the Editor

In regard to Sunday’s commentary “What else can Congress do to keep Trump in check?,” Lt Col. Vindman, as a serving member of the U.S. Army and undoubtedly holding a top secret compartmentalized clearance, is subject to courts-martial for unauthorized disclosure of said material. That is what the Uniform Code of Military Justice is for. […]

Letter to the Editor: Trump fomenting a civil war

Letters to the Editor

For the second time in its history, the United States of America is engaged in a civil war. This time the weapons are words of hatred instead of bullets, and believe it or not, it is the president of the United States who is behind it all. This man is a racist, a sexist, a […]

Letter to the Editor: Racial bias in death penalty

Several Delaware legislators recently announced that they are preparing to introduce another bill proposing to reinstate Delaware’s death penalty. This bill joins another, House Bill 165, that is in committee. How do these legislators propose to prevent the execution of an innocent given that neither bill requires DNA evidence, and Delaware is already among 28 […]

Letter to the Editor: Amazon’s corporate welfare

Once again Delaware taxpayers can bear witness to the ugliness and venality of the so called “Delaware Way”. Amazon, the multi-billion dollar conglomerate owned by one of the richest individuals on the planet, Jeff Bezos, is asking for $4.5 million in Delaware taxpayer money to “establish its operations in Wilmington”. This is another “prime” example […]

Letter to the Editor: Joe Biden for president

Every so often during my lifetime, I have been inspired to write such a letter as this to recommend an extraordinary person who is running for president of the United States. In this case I speak of former Vice President Joe Biden. During these very difficult and emotional times here in this country, not only […]

Letter to the Editor: Understanding sex offenders

Working with sex offenders and lecturing on this subject at local colleges, I was surprised at the misconceptions by the public regarding sex offenders. Most state they thought that registered sex offenders were the “worst of the worst-pedophiles”. Hopefully, Ms. Kleimo dispelled this misguided thinking. “Who are these we call sex offenders?” Feb. 1. A […]

Letter to the Editor: President can get back to business

Now that this sham of an inquisition is over and our president, Donald J. Trump, has been acquitted of all charges, I hope that the so-called representatives will get back to the job they were sent to Washington for — to serve the American people and not their own selves. How about giving our president […]

Letter to the Editor: Mountaire should adopt BCC

I was excited to read that Mountaire is trying to focus on animal health by becoming One Health Certified. However, after researching what that actually means for chickens, it is clear that it is not meaningful animal welfare progress. If Mountaire really wants to prioritize the health of its animals, they should adopt the Better […]
