Letter(s) To The Editor(s)

          I just sent this letter to the editor(s) of the Mail Tribune of Medford, and the Portland Oregonian. I wonder what sort of reaction I will get · · · if any.

          We now have clear and disturbing evidence that Trump is incapable of understanding the danger of the COVID-19 situation. My concerns are grounded in the realm of the sciences. It is critical that we force Trump to refrain from interfering with my colleagues with medical, environmental, and other scientific expertise.

          The republican party elite do not seem to have any real control over Trump. The democratic party elite seem to be unable or unwilling to hold Trump accountable for his irresponsible behavior. I do not have any faith in either of these two clubs, as they are ineffective in addressing any of our systemic problems.

          The RNC wants another four years of Trump, while the DNC wants to nominate Biden so that Trump will have a clear path to reelection. It appears our only hope resides within the "rank and file" of the electorate to eschew the republican and democratic efforts in favor of the one candidate committed to substantive enhancements to our environmental regulations and a tenacity for economic/social justice.

          Objectively, we are the country with the least competent leader. We have the most COVID-19 cases. The list goes on. We need to elect Bernie Sanders.

I thought better of you. I never dreamed you would advocate censorship. I've read your essays for years and enjoyed them However, I draw the line at censorship. I'm incredibly disappointed. I hope you re-examine your thoughts on this issue and return to a scientifically sound position instead of one based purely on emotion.
