Putney on point

Many thanks to Michael Putney for his May 11 column, Cure for the Trump/Hillary blues: Go with other races.

Putney’s excellent advice to citizens who are aghast at the tenor of the 2016 presidential race is to get involved on the local and regional levels — not only in political activities, but in worthwhile civic endeavors.

Wise words in these times when people across the spectrum are feeling frustrated and alienated by national politics.

To use that as an excuse to disengage from the process is the wrong thing to do, as Putney conveys so well.
