To the editor, It’s a tragedy that the Walworth County Sunday shopper is being eliminated. May all involved with its printing land on their feet.
Donald Trump probably isn’t going to land on his feet. There’s a list of things a mile long that are being investigated. Neil Young might be able to update his song “Let’s Impeach The President” from 2007, in which he sang, “Let’s impeach the president for lying.” I bet Young never envisioned a guy with somewhere between 12,000 and 16,000 under his belt at this stage of his presidency.
If Jim Reeves were still alive he might be telling Sen. Mitch McConnell, “Tell that friend there with you he’ll have to go.” There’s so many Republican congressmen retiring now that somebody who stays will be House minority leader by virtue of default.
Putting all those children in cages at the border is coming at the high cost of $775 per day per child. A true conservative would put them up at the Hotel Del Coronado, where it would only cost about $323 per day for each of them. What’s the end game: Keep them caged up the rest of their lives? If you release them now, ISIS and al-Qaida will have fertile recruiting. Didn’t anybody think of that?
America’s self-appointed chief meteorologist should probably have used white-out instead of a Sharpie to make it blend in better when he was doctoring up the map of where Hurricane Dorian was going to go. It would’ve been easier for people to believe it then. At least the National Weather Service in Alabama made things right.
