Porn, it’s teens’ new drug

Parents and school officials should do their best to educate children at an early age instead of burying their heads in the sand and pretending there isn’t a problem.

Take legal action

In regards to ex-veteran Chuck Mercer’s Sept. 23 letter on being asked to stop flying the flag in his small community: I would ask him to take legal action, if required. I will be the first to contribute.

Hispanic voters

The Miami Herald’s Sept. 22 editorial, “Oval Office candidates ignoring Hispanics,” seems off base. The “estimated 28 million Hispanics in the United States who are eligible to vote” fall in line with the millions upon millions of Asians, Europeans, Native Americans and people of Middle East, and African ethnicities who call the United States home and who are eligible to vote. Basically, we’re all in the same boat — E Pluribus Unum — and no one culture or ethnicity should come before the other.

Trump con job

The media report an outrageous statement by Donald Trump followed by several days of spin and obfuscation by the candidate and his surrogates in a seemingly endless cycle. It’s the patter and pattern of a con man used as a distraction to cover the substance of who he actually is and what he’s up to.

Letters to the Editor

Keep the ‘flowers’

Re Coral Gables flower sculptures: Think outside the box — keep the flowers. They represent the artist’s vision for our City Beautiful. They are creative, whimsical and contemporary expressions of nature.
