LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Dems shouldn’t ape cheap rhetoric

  • Mar 15, 2016 at 4:00PM

Editor, It is no secret that fear-bred polarization and the potential for serious violence over the upcoming elections is growing. So it is distressing to read my good friend Michael Seraphinoff’s recent letter referring to Elizabeth George’s thoughtful letter as “devious,” and describing those who question the wisdom of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “revolution” as “passive, manipulated… sheep.” We Democrats can do better than to ape the cheap rhetoric and ad hominem attacks modeled by some of the Republican candidates. Our nation is as fragile right now as at any time in the past five decades. The work of wise leadership is to hold a steady center and cultivate more reliable political will before calling for a dramatic and dangerous course shift.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Sanders is the most trustworthy pick

  • Mar 16, 2016 at 6:00PM

Editor, A term seldom used in the current political arena is “authenticity.” According to Webster’s New World College Dictionary (4th edition), that which is “authentic” can be “believed or accepted; trustworthy; reliable.” When it comes to evaluating presidential candidates, determining which one is authentic can be a challenge for even the most discerning of voters. In the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, determining who is the most authentic — Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders — is not just a matter of matching words with deeds, but following those words over time. Both have invaluable experience and knowledge, but only one of them has been consistent in their stance on a variety of issues.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Change is needed at Whidbey General

  • Mar 16, 2016 at 4:00PM

Editor, A meeting at 7 a.m. and the community “agreed” to change the name of the hospital? Sounds like the Politburo in Communist China. Only way we can wake these people up is to vote them out the next time they run for office. Remember “We the People?”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | City is putting too much focus on bar

  • Mar 16, 2016 at 2:00PM

Editor, I just read another article in The Record about the issues surrounding the former Mo’s pub. I just shake my head. First, a disclaimer. I am a townie. I spend my time in Edmonds when not in Langley.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Sanders is honest, will address the critical issues

  • Mar 16, 2016 at 12:00PM

Editor, I am glad the South Whidbey Record published Elizabeth George’s viewpoint on Sen. Bernie Sanders as a candidate for president of the United States. It is important for citizens to have a public forum to debate the merits and weaknesses of our limited choices in elections at the state and federal levels. The unlimited and anonymous money that Congress has now allowed to enter our election process has fostered an election system that relies heavily, if not completely on funding by corporate interests and the extremely wealthy.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Clinton may not be ‘likable’ but she’s the right choice

  • Mar 16, 2016 at 10:00AM

Editor, We’ve all suffered bacterial and viral infections. Prevention: wash hands, mingle body fluids appropriately, maintain immune system. Symptoms: fever, discharges, etc. When the immune system fails, we go with dangerous actions such as surgery, medications, and even isolation. Our political body suffers infections also. Well intended beliefs and ideologies, normally appropriately contained by our political system (elections, laws, free speech) sometimes become dangerous. On the right, Adolf Hitler. On the left, Josef Stalin.
