LETTERS: Praising Wallingford police, A climate denier speaks out



Police on the ball

Editor:

Hat tip to the Wallingford Police Dept. Upon entering my car in the early morning to go to work, a car slowed directly behind me out of my view and being in a vulnerable position with all my arthritis, I thought the worst scenario, but it was a Wallingford police car no doubt checking to see if it was one of these (criminals) who break into cars at night. Also it was good to hear about the good police work that apprehended those people who were up to no good a few weeks back near the Route 15 entrance. Again, hat tip to the Wallingford police, no one is ever gonna tell me the police in this country are no good, almost everything in this country is — backwards.

‘Denier’ sleeps like a baby

Editor:

I’m sorry, but talk about the classic liberal cop-out on climate change. Let me first say that I’m as conservative as they come, and I’m what you would refer to as a “denier.” I do believe we are having some impact on the climate, but nowhere near the extent of the experts, like Bill de Blasio or AOC. If the writer (“Taking on climate fears,” Jill Richardson, R-J, June 2) hurts so much about climate change that she can barely bear it, then do us a favor and live in a cabin in the woods. We are so tired of those who do not practice what they preach. I am 57 and the proud owner of a 2016 Dodge Challenger with 485 horsepower. It gets about 17 mpg and I sleep like a baby. I love everything about it. It represents American exceptionalism and freedom. Freedom from a government that the writer drools about. A government that can dictate what we drive, what we eat, what size home we can own and every other facet of our lives. I’m afraid the writer and her elitist friends will have to continue to endure their unbearable suffering (with a nice bottle of Chardonnay) over climate change as thank God the people like me who elected “The Donald” still believe in the greatness that is America.
