Cartoon was unfair

To the Editor:

I was greatly disappointed in your recent choice to run a political cartoon denigrating ideas of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders by calling them fantasies.

It reminded me of the words of Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, "All experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

If not for the fantasy of liberty we may still be a colony of the British Crown. Fantasy is the way to the future.

Only Two Kinds of People?

To the Editor:

In a letter to the editor on Aug. 28 a writer observes that there are only two kinds of people in the world. He further admonishes us to examine ourselves to determine if we are among the group that “elevate Godly things” or the group that “champions demonic things.”

So, I did a thorough self-examination, got confused, then concluded that no matter which group I belonged to, I knew it wasn’t the one that Donald Trump is in, even though he proclaims himself to be “the chosen one” and Steve Bannon claims him to be elected president only through “divine providence.”

I don’t want to be with demons either, so, is it possible that there more than just two kinds of people? For the sake of a peaceful world, I certainly hope so.
