Pregnant women must remain vigilant against Zika

The Healthy Start Coalition of Miami Dade (HSCMD) is at the forefront of this battle. The Florida Department of Health has designated the Healthy Start Program to provide case management for all women tested for Zika in Miami-Dade County.

Fernand Amandi missed

I was upset when I heard that 610 WIOD, which traditionally spews ultra-right-wing rhetoric cancelled the only voice of reason it had on the air. The station abruptly canceled Fernand Amandi, a progressive talk-show host who brought interesting commentary from the opposite side as the usual rhetoric, citing cost-cutting measures.

North Korea dangers

As a veteran of the Air Force who spent peace time in South Korea during 1965-66, I can only imagine what things are like now. Although we were allowed to wear civilian clothes or uniforms off base, I would never venture into North Korea for any reason.

Left unprotected

Carl Hiaasen’s June 18 column, “Shootouts where good guys win only happen in the movies — bad movies,” was not amusing. He ignored the fact that the only reason more members of Congress probably were not wounded or killed is because an armed security detail travels with Rep. Steve Scalise.

Dogs in danger

I give total support to U.S. Rep. Hastings and people fighting this horrific practices of the Yuling dog meat festival. It must be stopped to set an example to countries practicing these atrocities.

Exploiting divisions

I am so tired of Trump supporters blaming Democrats for not giving the president a chance. President Trump never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity. It is not my job to reach out to the White House. It is their job to reach out to me.

Cuba should leave

Protesters in Venezuela should be carrying placards and banners demanding that the Cubans leave Venezuela: “Venezuela for Venezuela” or the like. Hopefully that can be a united invitation for patriotic pride for the police and the armed forces.

The Miami Herald panders

VShame on the Miami Herald’s Editorial Board for pandering to the Cuban old guard with its June 16 editorial, “Time to make Cuba pay for its rigidity.” It appears the Herald has no difficulty with U.S. diplomatic relations between, say, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, both arguably with far more repressive regimes than Cuba’s.

Editorials

Violence in Venezuela must end

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is determined to do everything in order to continue his grip and control on Venezuela, a country now tittering on the brink of financial collapse.
