To the editor:
Over the past couple of weeks or so, I ran into a friend who I used to see quite often at various local government public meetings. If I didn’t have anything to complain about, he would and vice versa.
He asked what I was doing in the store and said that I should be home writing a letter. I thought that’s not a bad idea, my wife can handle this stuff. So I went through days of our federal government shutdown, listening to threats about our Social Security check not being sent on time, etc., etc.
Every time I opened the paper or turned on the TV or radio, I would be informed about how our “politicians” were going to fix our “political” issues. As this drama unfolded, it appeared that we had infighting taking place among those who wore the same emblem. Some I suspect went home and put their feet up on the desk. Then there began this brawl between those of the same party fighting with their senior members in the other house and vice versa.
