To The Daily Sun,
So much material today (Jan. 20).
First, while it is true that four months later we don’t know the Las Vegas spree killer’s motive; we also don’t even have a accurate timeline of the event that the authorities can agree on. That should have been fairly easy to piece together from records and video. Many people would like to hear the truth about that.
Second, does anyone think that the first “Women’s March” was anything more than a repurposed Hillary victory rally? Maybe those “pu$$y hats were just sitting around in a warehouse somewhere and attendees and speakers are just in the area.
Third, Thank you Ms. Dunscombe for making some positive statements about the Rev. Dr. King’s work. I wish that more people really internalized what he said about race (and "identity politics” before that was a thing).
Fourth, nice work, Mr. Veverka. You were able to hold off until your second paragraph to hit Godwin’s Law. Still, after your childish riff of Trump’s name, I thought that I reading about what Obama did (e.g., weaponizing the FBI, wiretapping the press, suppressing speech (then, criticism of the president was racist), attacking our allies (e.g., "Netenyahu is a chicken (expletive),") and lecturing the Supreme Court on proper behavior. I had almost forgotten that certain things are only bad when the Right does them. Oops.
And last, I’m so glad that Belknap County has such a surplus of funds to even consider suing pharmaceutical companies for the misuse of their products. The NIDA statistic was pretty vague. Correlation does NOT equal causation. The mass tort worked so well against the tobacco companies. All of that Big Tobacco money going to lawyers. Oh and medical treatment, I mean general state funds. I’m sure if Diogenes were alive, he would help in searching for deep pockets to raid. Your tax dollars potentially at work.
